A little while back I attended Sweet Lion Hearts first Joburg Textured Buttercream Workshop where I learnt how to create one of their amazing textured cakes using all sorts of clours and very specific icing techniques.
I was so excited to attend this workshop because it is literally right up my baking alley and I have to say I was not disappointed. I loved every second of it, including the part where I was recklessly flinging icing onto my cake, which I missed a few times but I don’t think anyone other than Adi saw so we were all good.
After the course, I came home armed with a few new interesting baking tips, a recipe and method for a damn good batch of buttercream and a brand new skill to create glorious edible cakes like this one that I made. I also learnt how to mould a flamboyant chocolate cake topper that I landed up eating before I put on my cake (I was the only one). Sigh.
It was awesome crafting and layering this spongy little guy and at the end of it I was almost a little sad to cut into it, but I got over that emotion pretty fast when my coffee was ready to be had with a slice. it was delicious by the way.
