I want to make a cake for my Mum and her Dad, whose birthday's are the same day. I also want to try to mail it to them! (mostly I want to see how the cake fares during postage!)
So, I'm thinking chocolate cake with ganache then fondant, will be fairly stable. I probably won't layer it at all. But, I'm having a really hard time with the design - It has to be fairly simple, as I'm posting it, not too girly or manly, or young or old! LOL
You can see why I'm finding it hard!!
Also any tips on posting would be great, I know it's not the best idea, but I want to give it a shot!
Oh and it will only be small, but I'm sure most ideas are adaptable to any size anyway!
Do they have any shared interests? Maybe you could do something to do with the date of their shared birthday. Maybe some kind of reminder of a shared birthday in their past or a favorite memory between the two of them. Good luck!
No shared interests, unfortunately! They live states apart, my Mum will down there visiting! Hmmm, the birthday memory sounds interesting, might have to ask Mum some questions!
It would be funny if she made her dad a birthday cake when she was younger and it was a disaster that you could re-create for them---it was dropped or the dog took a big bite of it or the frosting was a gross color.
