fake cake

I've always skipped blog posts on fabric cakes 'cause I thought I was never going to make one anyway... so why bother?

But this year I helped with the cake selling at school and I wanted to make something for the stall... I already made a chocolate cake, but I thought... why not? and made this fake cake.

The cake is a chocolate, cream and strawberry deliciousness... if it were real, I would have swallowed it whole...

The strawberries are Tilda style, I found a tutorial online that I can't find anymore, sorry.

Being my first (and probably last) try, I am perfectly satisfied. I still think that fabric cakes are not my thing, but I'm happy that this one is now a permanent installment at school... the kids were in awe...!

sorry, no chef here, but...

... if you fancy something to eat... I could make a carbonara for you!

It's not something I do very often, but once in a while I do enjoy a plate full of it.

And it's soooo easy to make: see? boiling salted water for spaghetti, oil and bacon...

... an egg, some black pepper and tons of parmigiano.

And you're done!

Amazing how crafting can conquer even the kitchen...
