Cake of the week: House-warming cake

A few weeks ago we moved house. If I’m honest, it was a pretty stressful event with two young children added to the mix! And I’m still unpacking boxes…

However, the whole ordeal was made more bearable when a gorgeous friend presented this beautiful homemade rainbow layer cake (inspired by this post) as a housewarming gift. 

It was absolutely delicious, and sustained me for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the first couple of days;-)

Why I love it:

  • I’m a huge fan of the tonal rainbow look – it’s a beautiful surprise when you cut the cake open. 
  • I adore the handwritten message. 
  • It was made with love and cheered me up after a stressful moving experience. 
  • It was delicious (and it fed me for two days!)

  • They’re pretty easy to make – chocolate cupcake, chocolate icing applied with a piping bag and edible eyes. 
  • These would be fun as part of an “Emoji-themed” party. 
  • Great for guys or gals

Why we love them:

  • These would be great for either a guy or gal.

Ok, so this one is a little too real for my liking, but I do know some men who’d go for steak over cake any day…
