It was my friend’s daughter Maya’s birthday and I wanted to do a special cake that is not so common. So I decided on a bed cake.
I made my two cakes. Basic recipe. The one cake was a rectangular one (8 eggs,2 cups margarine, 2 cups castor sugar, 1 cup milk, two tablespoons Vanilla, 4 cups self raising flour, the second was a 4 eggs square cake (half the ingredients for the other cake) and butter cream….lots of it.
I made the head boards from the square cake and the bed itself from the rectangular cake. Through trial and error, I cut out this cake. The trouble was in stabilizing the cake. I used carrot sticks eventually and the cake was stable.
