The Pirate Ship cake is a beauty. I wish my mum had made cakes like that for my birthdays! Actually, in 2014, Harriet sent in a photo of a Polar Bear birthday cake (that my ex, Heather, had made for Sophie's birthday a few years ago) to a women's magazine & she won a $100 prize. Whoever made this cake should be a winner too.Your sense of composition is very good, Suzan. I really like the "Reflections" & "Wintry Trees" photos. Incidentally, it was 42.2 C here the day you posted this.
Thanks for your kind comments Nick. That's actually a pinata, not a cake, but it's easy to see how it could be confusing. I can definitely see how the frilly paper could be mistaken for chocolate icing. And not too many 54 years have pinata's on their birthdays. The chocolate covered coins and lotto tickets went inside.
Well, it's a very good pinata...but how do you hang it up? It's a pity you didn't have any entries to the US$2.2 Billion Lottery that was drawn in the USA in the last day or so.
We hung the pinata from the roof of our deck with bungie chords. You can't see it but there's a loop at the top of the sail. That might have helped you tell it wasn't a cake. It was really too sturdy a pinata and most of the coins came out of the place I'd put them in.
Shouldn't have used Carbon Fibre for the piñata' s construction. I wonder if Mike received my card yet....judging by his pensive look in the last photo, I'd say, " Not yet."
