When a cake is not simply a cake…


Come the 2nd of February this year this sweet boy is turning 21.

As I did for The Daughter…the plan was to make a cake. Something like this one…

Classy – maybe not so girly, but still – well – nice.

Thanks to The Daughter I am now making The Son a different style of cake…very, very different.

Cake number 1

A banana cake just out of the oven…

Cake number 2

Also straight out of the oven – but this time a chocolate one…

Any of you bright sparks out there figured out what this cake will look like when finished ??

I’ll keep you posted as I go shall I ??

  6. Your third evil follower – as soon as I saw the second cake I said, “Okay, what do 21 year old guys like to see, that come in pairs? I KNOW!” Comes from having a husband and two sons, I guess.
