The Iconic 2 Litre Bottle of Strongbow... (Cake)

What better way to celebrate a 16th birthday than by reminiscing over your own teenage years and deciding that the 2 litre bottle of Strongbow really was a defining factor of being 16!  Well I'm happy to admit it even if you lot aren't!  It could've been worse, it could've been White Lightening!! 

Anyhoo, I made this cake for one of my closest friends eldest on his 16th Birthday.  It was such a wonderful thing to behold, after watching Ziggy grow and evolve over the years, seeing him start his journey to becoming a man and turning 16 made me swell with pride.  He's a good lad, even if he can be a bit of a typical teenager at times!  I can't talk... & my mother would agree!

The candles were a mixture of ones I found in the glove compartment of my car at the last minute that had melted and reset over the months of their imprisonment into a strangely twisted effect; along with candle finds at the bottom of the 'everything' drawer but we pulled it of and it was a super success!!!

This was just a quick snap shot before we lit the wonky candles and presented it to Ziggy!
(I particularly enjoyed carving and modelling the bottle's bottom... very tactile!) 

awwwww, happy, laughing teenagers...

A slice of Strongbow!

& here's a quick vid of the memorable moment...
