Cake and Rope
Last night I went to Ping Pong to celebrate Esmay's birthaday. I of course baked a cake. This time I had a my friend Esme helping to bake the cake which was very useful as we were short on time. I went with a chocolate marble cake with chocolate frosting and to top it all of mini cupcakes to decorate. I like the marble effect before it is cooked but it seems to get lost in the cooking process. The main difficultly I came across was carrying the cake. Why do I always make such large cakes? Using Esme's suggestion of putting string under the base and lowering it into the tin (I was very unsure of this idea) we did eventually get to Esmay.
