Vanilla sponge with buttercream and white chocolate ganache. Had a nightmare with the black handles which collapsed just before delivery. Thank goodness it was a dear friends cake. I asked them to give me an hour, and I then took off the black handles, covered the slight black marks with a pink cutout and made a chain handle and silvered it all within 20 mins. Someone up there was really guiding me those last few minutes. Phew, I needed a nice glass of wine after that.

Jackies Giant Cupcake
This cake was my worst night mare, I bought a silicon cup cake mold, and even with using cake release, the perisher would not come out of the mold.

The mold is going back to the shop on Monday with photos of what the cake looked like.
