Birds Nest Cake
This was made for a friends wedding anniversary- as it was 5 years we thought that we'd make wood from Chocolate and it developed into this. The couple are represented by the blue birds, their toddler by the pink and the egg is the baby due in August!
The cake is a rich chocolate sponge, filled with chocolate buttercream adn covered in more butter cream and chocolate shards. I also soaked the sponge in a port syrup which kept it beautifully moist and turned it into something very special.
