Baking the best birthday cake ever
Friday 24 October 2014
My name’s Laura. I attend Crumbles, a mini-enterprise based at Scotch Horn Day Centre in Nailsea.
We make cakes and all sorts of lovely sweet treats to sell whilst learning some invaluable skills which I hope one day will see me into paid employment.
Recently we received an order to bake a large cake to help celebrate Brandon Trust's 20th anniversary, along with cupcakes to represent each year of the Trust's existence.
The light and airy sponge cake was filled with fresh raspberry purée and buttercream, and then covered in fondant icing. We ordered the edible iced logo for the sponge cake and year numbers, from 1994 to 2014, to top the cupcakes off. We then very carefully transported the finished goods to Olympus House, Brandon Trust's head office, based a little way up the M5 in Bristol.
I was proud as punch and the reception we got when we showcased the cake was incredible. Unfortunately, we couldn’t stay until they cut the cake and tucked in, but I knew the eating would go down well as we only bake the best!
