This week I was asked to make a cake for Kathryn who is celebrating her 60th birthday. I was asked to make the cake poking fun at getting older.
The cake was a 50/50 mudcake (50% dark, 50% milk chocolate) with vanilla bean buttercream filling (This flavour is the popular request from the nurses). For the cake, I created dentures, denture glue, depends, pill bottle and pills, Over the Hill book, walking stick, nanna knee blanket , knitting needles, and a cup of coffee (not really age related but I was told Kathryn always has a cup of coffee in her hand). To give it a bit of texture, I decided to give the cake board a wool look. Each strand was rolled by hand. Everything was also completely edible.
