This weekend I did two weddings that would have made Sheldon and co proud. And I’ll confess I only knew what a Death Star was because Amy and Bernadete made them one on the show!
Batman I did know. I’m of a certain age and remember the original series ( as a rerun on Saturday morning telly, I’m not quite THAT old yet!)
I also learnt that travelling through Bude with a Death Star in your lap gets you very funny looks through the car window!
So here they are. Batman was vanilla with black raspberry liquor syrup. Star Wars was half lemon, half red velvet, with cream cheese icing.
Well to Nottingham. Last week was a good friends birthday. She’s a batman geek and her parents asked me to make her a batman cake. No problem! Except they live in Nottingham…..
I have posted cakes a couple of times before, and they are fine as long as you wrap them really well. Of course fruit cakes are easier, as they are denser and less likely to suffer damage. But this was a chocolate sponge. In fact it was two chocolate sponges! As the birthday girl had ordered a cake for her dad, who’s birthday was a few days later, neither of them knew. I had to be careful what I said! Make sure I was talking to the right person about the right cake!
Anyway, they survived!! Both cakes arrived in time and in one piece.
