Since Valentine's Day fell on my regular day off this year, I went all out and made Sak a cake! Well, the cake itself was just boxed chocolate mix, but the icing took a lot of effort, so that counts for something!
I used this Hatsune Miku cake tutorial, which is really well done and tells you just about everything you need to know. I suggest you check it out, there's a video too!
But here's how my experience went in any case!
I started by tracing an image onto the non waxy side of some freezer paper. I used the bottom of the cake pan as a guide for how big to make the circle.
Add cream to cover the edges. Done.
If I have one major flaw though - it's that I didn't apply the whip cream very evenly. Thus, when I flipped it onto the cake, parts with thin whip cream "sunk".
But I'm still very happy with it overall! I stuck it in the freezer for a good 30 minutes or so just to make sure it'd stay in one piece, and then in the fridge whenever we weren't eating it. It was pretty tasty, and I got to share leftovers with my sis and parents too!
If I ever had the time, I'd make another cake. It's such an interesting method, and whip cream is the *best* tasting frosting there is. I definitely recommend checking out the link above! They have a roll cake recipe I want to try next.
And yes, Sak did like the cake. Though I think he liked the spareribs we ate for dinner just as much, if not more. :P Cake just can't compete with a good slice of meat I suppose.
