Thomas the Train - JJ's 1st Bday

This cake is made for JJ's 1st bday as a gift. I was invited for his birthday dinner. Since I don't really know what to give (his parents are wealthy :D) I decided to make a special cake instead.

It took me 3 days to make. 1st day: baking, 2nd day: carving, 3rd day: decorating. Well, I still have to do other chores. But it's worth it. I'm glad that the people like it, especially the kids :)

Here is the birthday boy with parents.

Black Forest

This cake is made especially for Adrian, my ex housemate. He comes from the same hometown in Indonesia. Everytime he goes back or comes back, I always ask a favour from him.
He likes Black Forest cake. So I decide to make it for him.

The recipe is taken from Women's Weekly Book. I am curious to try. It's quite nice. Light & not chocolaty.

The cake itself should be 3 layers instead of 4.
