Monday Ta-da! - Moustache Cake

Minibakebakegirl is 11 today.  She only has 3 weeks left at Primary School - and what a jam packed three weeks it's going to be -  with dance displays and a school play among other things.

Yesterday, we had family round for coffee and cake.  The past three years I have made a Hello Kitty themed cake, last year's instructions were "that it wasn't allowed to be girly"!  Well, as Hello Kitty is so last year and Minibakebakegirl is Moustache obsessed, I didn't have to think too hard what to do.  I made a chocolate victoria sponge by adding two tablespoons of cocoa powder to the flour, covered it in buttercream and white fondant and then used the "Munchtashe" biscuit cutters to cut out black fondant moustaches.  Simple but (I think!) effective.

I also made a batch of vanilla cupcakes and made some chocolate moustaches for the top.  Dark chocolate, white chocolate and salted caramel milk chocolate ones!

Thanks for visiting,
