I posted last week about World Baking Day and the World’s Happiest Cake, and today I actually made that cake for my little gymnasts who had a competition that they were both very nervous about.
I used Stork for the first time ever and it made for a gorgeous light, fluffy sponge, I’d definitely use it again over butter. The cake had a lovely sunny, happy feel to it, perfect for a beautiful Spring day.
My little gymnasts performed brilliantly and were very happy to come home with an array of medals. They both work so hard and have improved so much recently, I’m very proud of them both. I was so relieved they both got medals as Zak would have been heartbroken if he’d lost to his little sister.
I’ve been extra busy this weekend and also baked a Harry Potter Hogwarts castle for Zak’s 8th birthday party ( he likes to challenge me ) I didn’t think it was that great, but his friends seemed suitably impressed. The cupcakes are meant to have scarves of them, but I got a bit bored, so only made two, I’m clearly not cut out to be a baker. I don’t have the eye for accuracy and neatness required, but I did have fun and the kids have loved their cake filled weekend.
You can find the full recipe for the World’s Happiest Cake here.
Who will you make a cake for today?

You are making my stomach grumble and it is not even lunchtime.
Well done on the medals. My girls are both gymnasts, so it is lovely to see others enjoying it too.
I did a lot of baking this weekend too. I made my first Victoria Sponge (really). •runs to eat last piece*

Ahhh I am so hungry right now!!!! I haven’t had a proper home baked cake for a few weeks now – I’ll remedy that tomorrow – fruit cake is called for I think!
Loving the Hogwarts skillz! I was secretly a bit happy when Oz told me he wanted a minions cake from the supermarket for his birthday cake!!!
I so want some cake now! And I am on a diet!
Hungry here too! that sponge looks fab
I don’t have the eye for neatness or detail too so tend to leave the fancy stuff to others and stick to what I know best – big fat puddings! Haven’t made one for a while actually as we are trying to be good. Your sponge looks fab x
That looks great i too have been baking today with Erin.
You can’t beat cakes baked with love, and these are amazing – well done kids too!
Oooh I need some of that cake – I’m in the middle of writing a post about cake and it’s making me so hungry x
