Book Cakes: Bakespeare? Sorry, I went there.
Really need to stop with the cakey puns…they are so not even close to funny.
Let’s try a Shakespearian cake quote instead (cheers Google University!):
Dost thou think because thou art virtuous there shall be no more cakes and ale? (Huh? Say what Billy?)
So, this week end the boys are off to Stratford to see the RSC perform “A Midsummer Nights Dream“. They are very excited as last year the theatre was being refurbished…shiny newness this year!
In honour of the bard, we thought we’d bake something with a literary theme. So books, bit obvious, but you think of something better! 😉
Also, it’s Simon’s birthday later this month and we are planning to bake him the Necronomicon with Cthulhu tentacles wiggling around it. Book practising is therefore required…why does that word always hint toward the obvious Freudian slip? Let’s just say it out loud and get it over with: necrophilia (wah wah :$)
So, a book, just a rectangle right? Erm, NO! It got all a bit tricky and there has been screaming, crying and stamping of feet in the Wondercat Bakery…
- Making a cake look crisp and rectangular: annoying
- Making a piece of icing look like leather: difficult
- Binding cake book in icing leather: pass the smelling salts
- Blue Book= pale blue base, dry brush with royal blue, shadow with navy.
- Brown Book= khaki base, dry brush with caramel, shadow with dark brown.
