It was J’s birthday yesterday and I made this black and white cake with a bright pink and black inside and this little fella as a cake topper (excuse the blurry photos):


The cake is raspberry liquorice flavoured, which I thought was a nice combination for the event. I used fresh raspberries mixed with sugar for the filling and black dyed vegan buttercream frosting flavoured with ground anise seeds for the topping + some rice whipping cream for good measure. It would have looked a lot better if I had used white buttercream instead of whipping cream I think, but you know how it is; it’s always easy to be clever afterwards! Tonight I’m going to the cinema to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Have a lovely weekend!
