Guess what day it is? It’s the Baking Mad Gym Addict’s Birthday!!!
If you haven’t come across the BMGA, she’s equal parts a beast in the gym and a whiz in the kitchen. She’s also an amazing friend and one of the main reasons why this website even exists. An honorary member of our Party of 11 if you will!
To say Happy Birthday and thank the BMGA for all her enthusiam and support for P11, we created this cake. A cake made into the shape of a dumbbell. Is that what they’re called? Clearly the gym is not P11’s natural habitat. Although if they had fabulous, sparkly weights like these, we would probably get to the gym more often. Okay, okay, get there at all.
So as not to derail the BMGA’s diet entirely, only a small amount of cake was used in this creation, together with the mini cupcakes to hold the candles. The weights are slices of Swiss Roll and the bolts are small pieces of Jam Rollettes. The whole thing is covered in icing and the ends are covered with silver cachous. As for the pink bar, I was lucky to find a tall, skinny plastic shot glass in my local party shop which was exactly the right size, but you could use anything from larger straws to lolly pop sticks and cover them in ribbon to get the right colour and size.
