I made this cake for Millie’s 13th birthday recently. Her dad called and asked me to make a cake and it had to include her favourite band, My Chemical Romance. “Sure I can do the cake…”I said. But showing my age, I had to Google and YouTube the band.
After immersing my self into the culture of Generation Z culture, for all of about five minutes, I did a quick sketch of what the cake might look like.
Here’s the finished cake: Vanilla sponge with vanilla buttercream and raspberry jam, covered with jet black fondant covered with edible black lustre.
The cake included an edible print of the cover of The Black Parade (see I’m in the know, now…) and was wrapped with black satin ribbon and decorated with 13 black candles.
A couple of days after the birthday, I received an email from Millie’s Dad:
Wanted to say many thanks for Millie’s amazing cake, she absolutely loved it and posted pictures of it all over social media and the feedback was amazing with friends asking where and how. You’ve made me officially the coolest Dad.” – Renny Raphael-Campbell
And here’s the birthday girl, Millie.
