The bottom layer is a Victorian sponge and the top, red velvet.

What a fun cake to make – I am such a Harry Potter fan and this made me want to read the books all over again!


Car-themed 2nd Birthday Cake

This cake was for my youngest son who just turned 2!

I didn’t want to do the usual ‘Cars’ theme or racing cars, but rather a fun, kids’ car-shape as inspiration.

The first one was a rich chocolate cake, done as a child’s drawing of a car scene:

This cake was for school.

The next one was a Victoria sponge cake for his party, done as a 3-D car:

Rich, gooey chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and fondant.

I also made a carrot cake in keeping with the theme, as well as low carb brownies for the health-conscious:
