This weekend we have two 30th birthdays to attend. Last night was Corey's brother in laws birthday and we had a small gathering and a pizza party at their house. I was asked to bake a cake shaped like the number 30. My only provision was that it had to be chocolate.
I made a chocolate mudcake (recipe from Crabapple Bakery) and covered it with a basic buttercream. I was going to make chocolate buttercream but I ran out of cocoa so vanilla had to do. Then I covered in smarties! Now just a word of warning if anyone thinks of doing this I used 4 family sized bags of smarties. That's a lot of smarties to separate into colours then place one by one on a cake. It took forever!!!!
But the birthday boy was very happy with it when we arrived so that made all the time and effort well worth it. Happy Birthday Benny Boy!!!
