It's all about birthday cakes round here this week!
This is heading to Oscar's bowling party tomorrow and I do hope there is enough to go round the 17 children we have ended up with!
This is almost an exact replica of the Pinata cake from the Womens Weekly birthday cake books and was much easier to do than I thought - the chocolate shell kinda looked intimidating at first but slipped right out of the bowl and onto the cake exactly as the recipe said it would. The worst bit was attaching all the coloured smarties and m&ms - an almost 2 hour labour of love! - one for the cake, one for me!
