Unbelievably, I am about to attempt to make a cake for the boys' 4th birthday. (Unbelievable because if you had of been privy to last years effort you would understand!)
I've never been an excellent fancy cake maker- I'm great at making batter from scratch and throwing it all in the oven, but that is where my expertise stops.
This year, DP has requested chocolate cake (like it's HIS birthday party or something?!) and I have a square tin but it's not really tall enough, so I'm going to have to make two cakes and sandwich them together.
My question begins with what do I use as the filling between the two cakes? Something yummy that would keep them nicely together would be nice?
Second question- I'm going to try again to cover the cakes in fondant, and I've seen that I have to cover the cakes in sugar syrup first- do I really have to? (Probably a stupid question but I thought I would ask anyway!)
Thirdly... actually, I think that was it for now...?!
