(My) Cakes

I put the MY in brackets as I'd love to see other people's cakes.

I just realised I bake on a weekly or fortnightly basis and would like to share with you.
This will be a photo thread on my part, because I'm using quite basic recipes - it's only the decorations that make them interesting. They're a feast for the eyes rather than extraordinary recipes. But of course I'll share recipes if requested.

And feel free to post good recipes here of course.

Bringing together some from the past:
Mum's Birthday Cake
Bundt Cake

Cake Pops in the form of ice cream cones
(FAILED) Valentines Day cakes.
For which Clod is not to blame - I overfilled the cases, which made them mutant rather than hearts.

I like the alliterative tone of the first cake ;p

Love the Bundt. Castles and cakes. Two awesome things brought together in harmonic confection.

Rabbit Krispies. Which also went wrong.
The difficulty with molten choc is it does not hold its shape and dried choc falls apart without the mould.

This is all about experimenting, I promise.

So the second pic is how I recovered.

Rainbow Cupcakes.
Although mistakenly identified as Easter Baskets by one member of staff....?!
Yeah, whatever, bless her.

I was tempted to do the cakes as rainbow layered too, but the bottom line is I just couldn't be arsed

And finally, Red Nose Day Flapjacks.
And yes, they have very similar faces to the Krispie cakes - I liked them so I brought them forward.
Experimenting, like I say.

More will follow.
I have an amazing idea for Easter Chicks in Nests.
Note - amazing idea.
We'll see how it turns out! It will be all my own work though.

Those ones were fine!

It was just as the choc dried the centre did not hold...
They would not pack into the mould - I only had one - and crumbled when removed. They also broke apart in transit, which is why I made the other cakies so tiny - they're in petit four cases. I stirred some syrup into the mix before making the cakies - it was cold and hard and crumbly by then.

I used too much Krispie to choc ratio initially.

She was confused because they weren't full on double rainbow cupcakes. Still just as awesome, I bet.

Just as sweet as Sundae herself!

You're too kind to make all those goodies. Most people just buy oreos and are done with it. good work.

Is molten choc the same as melted chocolate?
