recreation or epic fail?



(recipe and photo by whisk kid)



this is the cake that i tried to have a crack at today. i'd seen it before but was re-reminded by it through creativity and love . now, when i say "have a crack at"..i don't really mean try the whole layered and iced version. i'm far too lazy for that!

this was my much simpler and quicker version...


i made a basic cupcake mix...using gluten, wheat and dairy free products, then put food colouring in to make the colours. i put the purple batter into the patty pans first.




then put the pink over top. i then added green too. this was how they went into the oven...





and this was how they turned out, not quite the same. ( i envisioned clear levels of colour).

i made yellow vanilla icing...but would leave it white next time. might look slightly less kiddish and scary!

so not quite a recreation, but not an epic fail too. they still taste alright....a little eggy compared to normal cupcakes for some reason, but a cak├ęs a cake!

i'm off to have another one : )

I love it. Recreating a cake like this is on my list for 2011. I think this is a good attempt. Like an homage to the original cake.

Sickly looking, for sure! :oP
