As we passed the 100 day milestone to the Olympic Games last week my thoughts turned crafty! What could we make? We applied for tickets for three events and we know we’ve got some tickets, we’re just not sure for what events or if we’re able to take Little Sis as we applied when I was pregnant. We have less than 100 days to find out.
We haven’t been baking in a while so thought we would make the basic fairy cake recipe from Mary Berry’s Baking Bible, a recent birthday present which I am enjoying working my way through.
Once the cakes were baked and cooled we whipped up a generous batch of butter cream and divided it into five portions. I use Sugarflair which is a great concentrate for food dyeing and grabbed blue, black, red, yellow and green and mixed up small batches of coloured butter cream. Then I put a dollop of butter cream on each of the cakes for our version of the Olympic rings.
A bit of a messy make for the toddler but we did spend all afternoon poking our tongues out and laughing at each other as our tongues were dyed by eating the leftover butter cream. Fun times!
