My friend Katie and I decided to make a cake for our boss Graham's birthday a few months ago. We wanted to make it in the shape of something he really likes, so we put our thinking caps on after a couple of drinks on a Friday night...
We went through all the things he likes (Elton John, cowboy hats, Beetle boots etc), but then we got it: (like most men) he really likes BOOBS!
So on the following Sunday Katie baked two small sponge cakes in ceramic bowls, we then cut small wedges out of each one to get the 'Wonderbra' effect, and covered them with flesh coloured icing.
We needed nipples, so two cherries were cut in half and placed on top.
As we work with Graham, we decided that for 'modesty reasons' it would be best to cover the boobs with a 'bra', so we made bright red icing and started covering the cake. Unfortunately one of the cake boobs was still a bit too hot and the icing kept sliding off it, but at least I got the chance to send a message to my husband saying "Won't be home for another hour or so, one boob is too hot"
While we were making the icing, Katie dediced to spill half a bottle of red food colouring all over her white kitchen.
Instead of helping her clean up the mess I decided to take photos of her trying to stop the colouring running into the cupboards. That's what friends are for... I call this photo "CSI: Scotland".
As you can see from the last photo, Graham liked his cake, and was quite happy to pose with it in a highly seductive way.
We're already planning the next cake
