After running around town today like a crazy lady I finally managed to find all the bits and pieces for my fairy cakes, we’re having a bake sale tomorrow at uni to raise funds for our degree show at the P3.
I was so inspired by yesterdays cake sale at the Amersham Arms I was like proper enthused making loads of different ones. After some trial and error I have decided just to use normal icing (erm it’s a really garish red instead of a pastely pink.) Here are some of the things that went wrong:
-I left them for a bit too long so they’re as hard as rocks. I could knock someone out with them.
-I messed up the first time when I was heating the chocolate in the pan, i was going to make some delicious chocolate buttercream and I was like “Yeah that’ll be fine it’s pretty easy…” and well it wasn’t good. NOO! I should have put it in a bowl or summat instead… then I wasted even more cos the chocolate was a solid lump in the bowl so that didn’t turn out right.
So I’m a rubbish cook probably because it’s so time consuming and i’m well bloody impatient.
