The Monster Cake and a Birthday

31 May

My little sister is one of my favourite people of all time. She has this unfounded ability to cheer me up, make me laugh and put me in my place at all times, and I love her for it.

Last weekend she turned 26, and to celebrate, I planned a weekend of fun. We had afternoon tea at the Hilton on Saturday, dined at Duck and Waffle on Sunday and I made her a ‘monster’ birthday cake.

What do you think?


Monster cake, pre-eyes. At this point I was stressing because the icing was melting and sticking to the kitchen counter. Not my finest hour!!


The finished article! Didn’t manage the eyelashes, this was hard enough! #personaleverest

Danielle chowing down on the plate, which was made of white chocolate. Petit fours, cupcakes, cream teas and sandwiches. You had to roll us out of there!

    What a great cake! Duck and Waffle certainly looks like a worthy birthday celebration spot!

      Oh it is. Its a little prententious but definitely worth going. I thought the idea of duck on a waffle was weird, but it just goes to show the chefs know best!
