About this Bake

I made this for my best friend's 59th birthday. It was the first birthday cake that I've ever made, but I really, really enjoyed making it and I put a lot of effort into it.

Top tip

Take your time and try not to rush. When you roll icing, always sprinkle some icing sugar on a flat surface first.
