Titanic cake



As most of you know,
I am intrigued by the 100 year old Titanic.

Having read so many books, seen countless documentaries and watched the movie version a billion times
I could probably recount the ships history just as well as any historian.

I have very proudly painted the ship a few times



I've been to the Titanic exhibit a few times.



and a few years ago,
we even tried to build a cake  version of the titanic.

 not very well...   hahaha
but we had a good time making that mess!


This year I took a different approach to the cake.
First I started out with a round cake form and some yummy butter cream frosting.




Then tried to paint the ship on the cake.











Come on over,
I will grab you a 3rd class coffee mug
and we will break in to this baby!

Have an unsinkable day!

Rest in peace Titanic!

Leslie, I love your cake! Wish I was there to have a taste!

Leslie I am speechless. If you has read my Facebook earlier you would know why!! I "outed" myself. I have always felt this weird connection with it and when we visited the exhibit in Florida I swear, I looked for a name that was familiar as I would swear I was there. It is a standing joke among friends how I believe I was a passenger!

So my soul sister, will you bake me a titanic came and take me to an exhibit when I come to visit?? xxxx

Are you watching the film tonight? I want to but I'm outnumbered. Lol def going to the cinema though to see 3d. I will need a whole box of tissues xx

I love the cake! I've also loved reading the stories of the passengers of the Titanic; some I have heard before, but there have been some new ones too. There's just something so captivating about it, isn't there?

Sarah B said...

Yes thanks, pop the kettle on! It looks fab. I was reading yesterday that there are heaps of kids out there who don't realise the Titanic was more than just a movie! Ahh, the youth of today!

Sarah B said...

Me again, have you heard anything at all from Annelie from "New England as I see it"? She hasn't blogged since Christmas and her email isn't on her blog. I have left a couple of messages but haven't heard anything so was a bit worried. Do you know her? I had a feeling we were all followers :)
