My friend recently had her birthday and I offered to make the cake; I know, huge pressure on myself to produce. Her birthday theme was Halloween and so I went along those lines for the cake. Spiderwebs; blood and then to make it more dramatic, some hand made roses. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. It also turned out to be the heaviest cake I have ever made; it weighed in at around 5kg. I do not envy Alex for carrying all through our journey to get to her party on Saturday.
