Cookie tin cake fun
June 12, 2013
My brother-in-laws share the same birthday. With John turning 50 a big cake was planned, click here to read about the Ironman masterpiece. My other Brother-in-law Dave proves a bit of a challenge when it comes to his birthday cake, as he doesn’t really do cake!! For the last few years we have presented him with a tray of flapjack or shortbread and he loves them but I always feel like I should try harder to make it more cake like, as a candle in a plate of flapjack just doesn’t look as good!
This year there were more people who like cake than don’t, so it was the year to make a cake fit for an amazing brother-in-law, whilst including flapjack and biscuits. Kev came up with the idea of making a box or tin out of the square cake I had baked, which we could then fill with individually baked bars. The cookie tin idea was created.
