My mate Graham is having a 70th party tomorrow.
My other mate, Sheila, said, "Ooh, Steve likes cooking, I'm sure he'll make you a cake". Thanks Sheila. I do like cooking but I'm no expert baker. Still, a Mate's a Mate, eh?

Graham has taken up the violin, much to everyone's distress, so Challenge On.

First I baked a few cakes, chocolate and swiss roll

I shoved them together and used another small cake tin to shape the profile

Very nice Steve. Thanks for the WIP.
Cue the usual... "I would have gone for a gloss finish" ;-)
and
"What glue did you use? I bet the icing left you enough glue up time"

I have only liked the two posts above since there isn't a button to alert the mods to terrible puns.

Anyway having sampled Mr. Maskery's cooking a few times I have rosin to bow to his very superior skills...

Thank you all (I think).
I've just had a bit of the leftover cake for pud, and EIISSM, the cake itself isn't half bad. The icing is a bit sweet for my taste, but then icing always is.
I started this yesterday and I suspect I've put on half a stone.
