Now this was a very satisfying project. (By the way, please excuse any typos, I blame the cat on my laptop!) Rich's cousin was married recently and we made; you've got it, the squidgy chocolate cake for her wedding cake. The base was two eggless sponges piled on top of one another; both 12" square (I have no idea how I got them there!) and the buns were vanilla with piped vanilla buttercream and handmade Maori symbols (unfurling fern and fishhook) on top. The cake itself was in the shape of a Maori triple twist, which was totally beyond me but Rich used his brain and came up with the goods!
