A Very Special Garden Cake

My Grandad turned 90 earlier this year - what a fantastic excuse for a fancy cake! He loves gardening, so we decided to go with a chocolate cake decorated with a garden theme. I really enjoyed making this one, it was great to get creative with it.

We drove this huge cake all the way down to Leicester. It's the furthest I've driven a cake yet and it was terrifying! I was convinced that it would be in pieces by the time we arrived, but everyone (and the cake) arrived in one piece.

Honestly, this cake was huge. My mum way overestimated how much cake we would need to feed everyone. But there's no such thing as too much cake... right?

And here I am with said cake and my lovely Grandad.
