Max’s Cakes

True to my word I have baked my little Max a cake (that Shane and I enjoy on his behalf) on the 10th of the month each month since he was born, I just didn’t post one last month as it wasn’t a new recipe.  Unfortunately due to time constraints I didn’t try a new recipe this month either – but I thought my attempt at cake decoration was worth sharing.

This little guy is one of the little alien critters on the freeze Shane and I created in Max’s room and he tasted delicious I used this excellent easy peasy chocolate cake recipe.  Have a look at the photo below and let me know what you think.

Last month I re-made this Marble Cake, I must say second time round the marbling was much improved and to change things up a bit I used ‘boyish’ colours instead of the traditional pink, yellow and brown.

I am hoping to get the time over the weekend to try out a new recipe (maybe even two – but I think that would really be pushing it, haha) so hopefully there will be something new to share with you next week!
