Cake for the Fisho

The MOTH's birthday was last week and the kids designed his cake (the first design by yours truly failed miserably..) We baked his favourite Oriental Sugee Cake and had it covered in marzipan (almond paste) instead of the usual sugar paste. Marzipan and sugee cake is a wonderful combo. The cake's basically a scene from one of his fishing trips - his big blue net, red pliers, the bucket of stinky (and flies-infested) chicken intestines and beer. The MOTH is clearly a tad overweight here (no thanks to the downpour and the figure weighing down) but a gentle reminder of what's in store if the gut gets wider in the coming years..ahem. He's of course, wearing his favourite green cargo pants (although my version of it is way more cool,) and white tee holding on to a sizeable catch. As with any fisho, there's always "the big one that got away" (see the rod, broken line and fish swimming off). Happy Birthday love! xoxox
