Psycho Sunday: Gateaux Joely
This afternoon was spent eating cake and discussing psychopaths whilst sat in a rocket ship…
No lie, all true! It was Skeplit: Psycho Sunday and we were discussing Jon Ronson’s “The Psychopath Test”. The new and much improved location for Skeplit is the Rocket in TV21 Manchester! Meeeeeeoooooooommmmmbbbbbrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrpppppuuuuuuuuuuuuuuukkkkkkk (that’s my rocket noise)
It was also a chance to present Ms Joely with her belated birthday cake.
I wanted to make a cute, personalised cake so I picked a few things that come to mind when I think of her.
- 1) Tea: She enjoys a nice cuppa.
- 2) Book: She is the author of the AMNAR book series.
- 3) A charm quark: subatomic particle and subject of her twitter name…also a cute toy from Particle Zoo
- 4) Chocolate: Her cake flavour of choice
So, here’s what we came up with!
Chocolate Cake with Dark Chocolate Ganache and Caramel Sauce…all concealed in pale blue and white (no easy task!)!
I have to say that the book and the quark were not too difficult to construct…the teapot on the other hand was a total mother fucker!
I think Joely was happy with the cake and it was all gobbled up whilst discussing psychos…in a rocket ship…did I mention we were in a ROCKET SHIP!?!?!
I haven’t included the recipe but if anyone wants chocolate num num, I’ll post it as a follow up.
I’ll sign off with a basket of cat…
Have a nice week everyone!
