Share the Love Birthday Cake


Never have I ever made such an important birthday cake at such short notice! This cake needed to represent the five-year-old recipient's loves and, whilst I was unable to complete them all, I managed most.

Here was my list of loves for this little dude:
  • Chocolate
  • Favourite colours are green and blue
  • Skateboarding
  • Ninja Swords
  • Dirtbikes
  • American YouTube Vlogger, Stephen Sharer and "Share The Love" 
I was unable to source a moto-x dirtbike topper for this cake, but I hope the little BMX bike will be a happy substitute. So, let's have a look at how this seriously last minute cake turned out ...

Chocolate ...  Check

This is my second chocolate cake this week, and mmmmm it looks, tastes and smells are good as the first one. Once more, my chocolate sponge recipe did not fail me and neither did the delicious chocolate buttercream.

Fave Colours ...  Check

Blue fondant with blue toppers, with a little bit of green colour on the skateboard.

Skateboarding ...  Check

Awesome skateboard cake topper

Ninja swords ...  Fail

OK, so I failed on this one, but I've pretty much got the rest sorted I think.

Dirt Bikes ...  Check, well, sort of

Finding a dirtbike cake topper was hard at such short notice, but I think this little BMX should be a pretty cool substitute. And, with it being a wonderful blue one, I think I just might be forgiven - I hope

'Share the Love' ...  Check and double check!

The young man's Dad sent me the 'Share The Love' logo but, as it was such poor quality and would have pixelated on printing, I got my 'digital enhancer' working on it to prevent this happening. The printed icing sheet topper was then cut to shape and affixed to the top of the cake.


Once that dried, following the scourge of all cakers, humidity, I made a few cupcakes for good measure. Chocolate chip cupcakes with vanilla and chocolate frosting. Yum!
