Happy Birthday, Slashfood!

My very favouritist food news website, Slashfood turns one tomorrow, and in true Slashfood style, they're having a birthday cake competition. And the stakes are high. For first place, the winner will receive The Cake Book and the runner-up will receive a copy of Crazy About Cupcakes. Since I own neither of these, I thought I'd give the challange a go.

I've never decorated a cake before, so I thought I'd keep it simple. I copied the Slashfood logo in the hope that it would catch the judges eye. The winners are announced in the morning, so all of my digits are crossed.

See the rest of the competition that I'm up against on this Flickr group.

Updated: Well, I guess the digit crossing worked! I came second. YAY for me! :) Look out for recipes from this book!

Congratulations! Is the icing fondant? I think at some point I'm going to get brave and try to make some! Enjoy your cookbook!

Hi Claire!

Indeed it is fondant! Definately try some! Or do what I did and get the store bought stuff ;) (Oops, should I have admitted that?)

Thanks for your well wishes everyone!
