Is March a big month for birthdays in your world? I have my mom, A (boyfriend), brother, and A's mother all in March. Which is great, as I like to get the important ones out of the way, but March does seem to sneak up on me. I keep forgetting it comes after February :)
I decided to make A a cake that looked like the jersey of his county. He is a very proud Limerick fella so I knew I had to make a solid effort to do it well. This is my first cake so it is pretty rough, but I still enjoyed the process.
Here's what a Limerick jersey looks like (courtesy of the online GAA store):
And here's what I ended up with:
Whaddya think? Does it look like the original?
I started out by making a chocolate biscuit cake, which was very easy and was a great medium to work with. Its fairly rich so a small chocolate biscuit cake would go a lot further than a sponge or Madeira cake of the same size.
So what are your hopes for April? I hope you and yours have a wonderful month!
