Another architect friend of mine asked me to make his wife a few cakes for her birthday last week. Fortunately this time there was no structural engineering required. His only requests were for the cake to be pear and ginger and for bright colours.
His wife is a florist so I made some of the little flower pots with flowers in and a range of bright flowers to top the cakes. I really like the flower pot cakes, I might have to make some in large size too.
Really nice batch of cakes to make and I think ginger and pear worked although the pear could have been swirled in the batter rather than mixed in completely as it changed the texture of the cake slightly.
