Happy Birthday Joel!

Joel, guitar – and sitar- hero from Sunday Driver turned thirty at the end of October. We’re turning the upcoming gig at Cafe de Paris (Friday 13th November – be there!) into a sort of birthday party for him. ‘Cos we’re nice like that.

I decided to try out a new technique on this cake – brush embroidery. That’s the two elephants on the top of the cake. The one is the middle is just made of sugarpaste, to hide an unfortunate dent in the top.  I was a bit rushed for time and I’m avoiding writing my infamous NaNoWriMo novel, so it’s not as neat as it could be. And in retrospect I don’t think I should have done the freehand flowers – brush embroidery ones would have fitted better.

But I still think it’s pretty cute:

Happy birthday Joel! NOM NOM NOM

  1. It was delicious and went down a treat at the gig as I had failed to eat any dinner…
