V1 from the dynamic V duo has been attending a few hens nights lately. At the first hen night she was in charge of the entertainment, so asked me to help with the catering. After a few hilarious phone calls we decided to make a cake fashioned in the shape of a love tool. We settled on red velvet with cream cheese frosting, the red velvet is perfect for that dramatic effect after cutting into it. After the success of the first cake, she was asked to make another for an upcoming hen night. So we got busy again making the love trungeon cake.
The first cake was for Arlene. On this particular night my hand held mixer finally died during the frosting making. I was both a little sad and overjoyed. I finally had an excuse to get myself a brand new kitchenaid....woot!
So here are a couple of happy snaps of the first love wand.
V1 sculpted the love stick from a picture we found on the net. Before this whole novelty cake thing I had no idea there were so many pictures of that nature on the Internet........did you buy that lie? For the hair we used chocolate flavored Persian fairy floss. It did an awesome job, and really looked authentic. Unfortunately overnight the fairy floss collapsed quite alot from the moister in the air. But I was told that it had the desired effect despite the flaccidness.
The second love tickler was for Thuy. On this occasion we decided to buy a cake tin and hopefully make our lives a little easier. By now we were total sculpting pros and had the easiest time putting it together, well it was easier, but with more skill comes more ambition right? So we decided to add a hand and some arty but descriptive bodily fluid.....eeewwww! We actually made the hand first, and didn't realise until later that it was a tad too small for the love muscle. V1 was on the ball and just said that the hand belonged to a petite Asian lady. hehehehehe.
So here are some happy snaps of the second love organ
I had so much fun making these two cakes. I don't think I've giggled so much in such a short period of time. So many obvious jokes, oh so many...uncountable. My absolute favourite was from V2 who suggested we should go on Masterchef as contestants and present every dish we cook in the shape of a trouser snake. I'd love to see Matt Preston dig into that while wearing his cravats!
Congratulations to Arlene & Anh, and Thuy & Cuong, may you're wedded life be long and joyful....a bit like a love flute...sorry I had to do it! And as a visual parting gift, I give you Romeo and a paper cutout.....I hope you can put two and two together.
