I also had an order for a carrot cake for Easter Saturday, I used this recipe. However I did take a picture of one cake I made recently. I had an order for a 30th Birthday cake for a girl. I was told she liked flowers but not really pink and it had to have Happy 30th Emma on it and this is what I came up with:
The base is a basic Victoria sponge base with vanilla butter cream in 3 layers.
I was quite happy with it, however I still think I need quite a bit more practise on levelling and icing the cake, I could really do with some better equipment of taking a class but it's just finding the time. Plus I much prefer making smaller cakes or naked un iced cakes any way but that's more for home baking I suppose.
Well no recipe for today as I haven't made anything I haven't posted before, I do currently have a German sourdough friendship cake in the process. I was given a starter and some instructions by a friend and everyday you stir the mixture, adding milk flour and sugar every few days and then after 10 days you split the mixture into 4, use a quarter to follow the recipe and make the cake and give the other 3 batches to friends with the instructions to start the process again. Its currently sitting on my worktop half way through the process, so I hope it's successful and that I manage to think of who to give the other 3 batches too. It's good the way it carries on, it's like the cake that never ends!
Lastly I just want to point out I've now put a little search bar in the left hand corner of the screen so you can search previous recipes I have posted.
Any way I will post a picture of my friendship cake when it's done until then
bye for now
