(I don't know why you don't see more Spongebob plates used for styling.) Looks like a burger, but it's two cakes (orange and choc-orange) split and sandwiched with melted strawberry jam and buttercream (that was in the fridge too long and was very hard to spread).
Then I tried to make dark choc ganache, but it's for a one-year-old, so I used (cheaper) compound chocolate, and it wasn't really sweet enough, so I added icing sugar ... and it set in the bowl like cement. So I made milk-choc ganache, which was a light brown (hmmm), but I soldiered on and iced the cake, topping it with mini marshmallows, but that didn't 'do' it either. So I mixed up a batch of plain old ordinary chocolate icing (using cocoa) and iced it again, over the ganache and then added the marshmallows again, in a flower pattern, with yellow M&M centres.
By this stage it was looking nothing like my original plan, so I did the usual, and disguised it with shredded coconut. Tadaaaah!
It looked like some sort of hairy, wookie, alien thing by now. But it did the trick (ie. held a candle) and (thankfully) tasted great. Here's a cross-section (in case you're still reading...).
I went with a similar idea when icing the main 'after dinner' birthday cake -
It actually smelt a lot like an iced vovo in the end. Lovely combo of jam, marshmallow and coconut.
B liked it!
She didn't mind the lamb shanks for dinner, either.
Happy First Birthday B! It's fun having you around!
