I made this cake for one of my nearest and dearests 40th. She is a massive Gary Barlow fan so I thought I'd have a go at fashioning him out of cake for her.
I didn't have a huge amount of time to do him justice, or at least that's my excuse!
Although I don't think it resembles Gary all that much (in fact looks more like my friend Jack who looks like Gary if that makes sense!) Nicki knew immediately who this friendly face was trying to be and reacted accordingly.
I made him out of Lemon Drizzle cake as it's a favourite of mine and is always a pleasure to make properly with real lemon juice and plenty of it, something that shop bought cakes just can't touch.
We feasted appropriately, with Nicki taking the initial bite... Here's Gary in all his glory...
Just a couple of snaps of the process...
and some from the party night itself... the adults being a little bit worse for wear by the time the cake came out, please don't judge us! :)
HAPPY 40th LOVELY NICKI!!!
