Things to do in Amman before you leave...

Make a Hawaiian themed engagement cake! What else?

I had a lot of fun making this cake for a whole host of reasons. Firstly, I haven't drawn anything in ages and this gave me the opportunity to draw Hawaiian hibiscus flowers along with pretty leaves n things. Two, I got to play around with slightly exotic flavours - lemon zest with coconut cream cheese frosting (exotic compared to the basic vanilla and chocolate cakes I make). And thirdly, it was surprisingly straightforward to make, yet seemed to produce quite a stunning result!

Oh and for the record, I said I would blog within two weeks - and I have managed to blog within two days! So all is good...


  1. I can honestly say I never saw such a creative cake, not even on Cake Boss!

  2. Btw, ever think about baking a cake with someone then letting them write a blog entry about it? Would be great.

  3. We are spoiled now, new post, new post, new post!
