Moo Cake

My new (and lovely) regular client Kym wanted to surprise her friend Susie with a birthday cake.  Susie is dairy, gluten and yeast intolerant (feel a bit sorry for her!) but I tested out my delectable chocolate mud recipe with dairy and gluten free ingredients and do you know what?  It is (almost) as yummy!

Susie is a big fan of Caroline Shotton's work so we decided to recreate part of her Marilyn Moonroe painting.  

Here's the painting:

And here's my painting!

I was really pleased with the painting but had a devil of a time with the dairy-free buttercream!

See you next time...


  1. Много интереста тортичка :)

  2. Susie here :0)

    Oh my, what a cake. It's delicious! It's so nice to be able to have a fabulous cake. So much of what's on offer commercially it's overly sugary and synthetic. This cake is divine, I was totally blown away. As for the design, you captured Marilyn Moonroe perfectly.

    Thank you for all your hard work and the buttercream is delicious :0)

  3. Susie, I'm so glad you like your cake!
