Sally tries to make a birthday cake Part 1

Just simple sponge cake, a little difficulty getting it out of the tin, but OK so far.

I rang up Steph (who made the fabulous cakes on my blog) for a bt of advice. The butter icing was much heavier on butter than I thought it would be. This is enough for DH's cake on Wednesday and for DD's cake next weekend.
Softened the jam with a quick blast in the microwave. I seem to have lost my pallet knif so these items were test driven instead. The cake server worked the best.

Jam on first.

Then the butter icing to straighten the cake up for the fondant icing.
