Guest Post: Punk Rock Wedding Cake by the Vampire Cake Baker

Greetings Holy Handcrafter Readers,

I am the recipient of a number of wonderful and holy handcrafts and in return have submitted some pictures of my baking for your perusal.

As a vampire, I find that I have to spend most days hidden away inside as my pale complexion cannot take the sun. I don’t like the taste of people, and so the vampire cake baker was born. My cake makes people do my bidding, and friends don’t find your staying in during the day suspicious if you bring them cake in the evening.

This is a cake I made for the beautiful wedding of two such friends. The bottom layer is raspberry and vanilla marble cake  (made of course with fresh raspberries making a lovely pink swirl), the next is a lemon cake, followed by a simple vanilla sponge, and the top (only eaten by the bride and groom) was awesomely chocolaty. Don’t choose one cake – HAVE THEM ALL!

I highlighted the stars and piping with sparkle dust, because no one can ever have enough edible sparkles, in my opinion. The cake topper of the King and Queen of hearts was the happy couples’ idea, and looked amazing.

This cake kept me out of the sun for a good few weeks, and left me nice and pale for the wedding.

I go back to the shadows now,

……oh, and yes, I do turn into a bat – just big enough to steal cupcakes from those who are not vigilant. Mwaaa haaa haa haaa haa.

Monster Cake

This grumpy little monster was another Helen and Sophie creation, this time in honour of Loocy Goose’s birthday.

I mentioned that the Invader Zim cake was stripey inside, right? Well this is what I meant…

Stripey Cake!

I think he looks grumpy because he knows he’s about to be eaten. He did get his revenge on us though – I think everyone left feeling slightly queasy from all the sugar and food colouring, which is a damn fine way to do a birthday party in my humble opinion!

The stripes inside are made by sandwiching 4 different coloured cakes together with jam – really simple but really effective. Also totally worth the look on Loocy’s face when she cut it open (she was the only one who didn’t realise that Helen and I were up to something).

The outside is buttercream again, which works really nicely for sandwiching 4 cakes together because it’s so thick.

Thanks go to the Vampire Cake Baker for her help and advice on this one, look out for a few of her creations sneaking their way onto my blog in the future…
