While discovering some stunning cake creations on Pintrest I showed my husband a cake that I really liked the look of, and declared that even though I had only one proper cake under my belt I was going to make a kitkat cake at the upcoming Oliver family gathering.
He laughed …
And then proclaimed that I would never ever be able to make a cake even half as good … he than stated “even I could make a better cake than you” .. gee thanks
So I accepted his challenge … after all there is nothing better than a little bit of matrimonial competitiveness to earn ourselves a divorce so who was I to argue!
The Oliver family gathering was set for Sunday 15th March and so the week before I asked husband dearest for his list of ingredients and any items he would need as I was intending to collect them on Saturday morning on the way back from London …. The list was short .. However after questioning the shortness I was advised to worry about my own cake.
So after collecting the ingredients for both my own and hubbys cake I got stuck in as soon as I was through the front door!
I split my cake into 2 tins and baked … after an issue with being too impatient I nearly lost my cake trying to get them on the cooling racks before they were ready but thankfully all was not lost!
And I have to say I am rather proud of my easter cake creation!
