Nokia N900 Cake [Attempt 1]

| January 7, 2010 | Reply

Yesterday I found out I was free to go to the WOMWorld meetup. For tonights get together, I thought I’d bring cake. A Nokia cake.

Important thing to do before decorating a cake. Make sure the icing can set!!!!

I’d like to call this Attempt 1, because it didn’t go down too well.   I had a chocolately coloured icing that did set, and a darker one that didn’t. I should have gone for the cholocate one because the dark icing would not set! Not even when placed in the freezer! It’s like sculpting with lotion.

As a result, I couldn’t go into proper detail because the black layer just moved about too much. :( Any slightest accidental touch would completely trash previous markings. I kinda just gave up on it because I didn’t have time to sort it out – have to shower and get going to london in a mo!

Another thing to worry about, because the travel time is about 4 hours, I have to keep the cake in the freezer so it won’t completely melt into a sludge on the way. I’ve never frozen cake before so I don’t know if it will defrost properly. Plus, because I’m travelling, I had to maintain the base over the slide as it would have snapped off with any sudden movement.

Needless to say, WOMWORLD meetup attendees, there most likely might not be cake.

Aah. Apologies for the state of it N900 fans. If I do try this again (right now, if I never see cake again it will be too soon :p) it won’t look this horrendous.

      Thanks CJ!

      The cake itself untouched was this old 10 billion calorie cake. It tastes nice when you have it but you regret it when you step on the scales :p Not sure how it’s gonna be like after being defrosted though >_<
