In the Cake Stories kitchen there is only one way to reconcile the fact that those balmy days of high summer are but a distant memory, fading tan and set of lovely pictures in my album (well haven’t quite made it to an album in years – so will have to substitute digital storage system for that!). The only way to celebrate this is to make a cake with a whole lot of cold air going on, the sort of cake which makes us remember how lucky we are and invites us to marvel at a band of altogether more hardy souls…. well they may be more hardy but they still love a little play around a half frozen pond…. like to play some of the games they have somehow seen on social media and generally bring a shiney cartoon feel to an artic scene…..introducing the Cake Stories Penguins…..
As you can see the Penguins are making the most of a small patch of thawed water….all have remembered their scarves…lets have a quick look for some of the characters…
Our scientist penguin wants to explore how deep that pond is – and has found a tripple layered sponge cake underneath….Notice our extrovert Penguin appears to have seen an audience building and prepares a quick piece of mime – quite handy as he hasnt perfected his vocal range yet….
Will let them enjoy the pond now…….I wonder whether the oversized wooly hat will catch on…..???
