So yesterday it was Matty's birthday and my mum and brother decided to 'make' him a cake. I use the term 'make' loosely as there was certainly no baking involved... well not by them anyway.
It apparently started off as a simple endeavour. The aim was to get him a mud cake from the supermarket. When they got there though, they couldn't decide between the chocolate, caramel or white chocolate mud cakes...so they got all three.
As if it isn't bad enough, buying one person three birthday cakes, they then decided that they should 'build' the mud cakes into some form of tower.... and this is how it arrived at our house:
Apparently it looked awesome when they first constructed it, but they soon found out that marshmallows weren't a suitable substance to build the supporting beams out of (well, it wouldn't take a rocket scientist to work that one out!), so they put in some skewers to hold it in place and topped them with marshmallows too.
Unfortunately the sheer weight of the mud cakes resulted in it having a slight lean by the time it arrived at our house. The sea of whipped cream around the bottom of the cake (which had kit-kat floating in it) was more like a sea of horridly melted cream, but it still tasted good.
There were chocolate skewers sticking out of the side too... oh, and a flake or two on the top. Simply looking at it was enough to give you a heart attack lol!
While I would only give my mum and my brother a 4 out of 10 for the appearance of their cake, they definitely get a 10 out of 10 for enthusiasm and effort!
