The perfect cake for any chocolate and peanut butter fan!
Last week was a very busy week in the ZoBird Kitchen. Besides making plenty of cakes for other people I made a delectable cake for me and Grant too, meaning I spent a majority of last week and the weekend in the kitchen baking my little heart out…madness I hear you cry…BLISS I hear me sigh! This cake was the last of the week and was made for my good friend Mr Rigby who has only been in our Create Dept since September but is already a well embedded member of the Create family…it’s also a huge bonus that he loves cake like me!

Zap! Kapow! Thwop! It’s a Batman Birthday Cake!
Made for a special 26th Birthday (the fiance’s sis), this 1960s inspired Batman cake was my first attempt at anything overly creative in the large cake department!
