Oh oh oh it's magic!

I have made it my end of year resolution to make all my friends birthday cakes from now on.
The first one up was my friend Wayne Blane a.k.a Mr Magic man. He's one of my bestest bestest friends and he's a super awesome magician to boot. The theme for his cake was pretty easy.
Alakazam!
This was two layers of the Jelly Doughnut Cupcake recipe from Veganomicon. Slathered in the middle was Raspberry Jam and then topped with rolled icing. The cards were made with the same rolled icing and then decorated using food colouring and a very steady hand. Wayne LOVED it (he had three slices!) and I have to say I was pretty impressed too. I'm really looking forward to making all my friends cakes - I have some super awesome ideas already!
GO VEGAN!

Those cards are great! What is rolled icing?

Jeni Treehugger said...

Does fondant icing explain it? It's just blocks of ready mixed icing that you roll out with your rolling pin.
