Waltzing Matilda for Absolute Media, Horwich
When I first made my Matilda Cake, my friend Wayne commented that it looked a little like the logo of the company he works for. I know from Twitter that the chaps from Absolute Media like a bit of cake. Ding ding ding! Baking challenge...
Their colour scheme is orange, so I set about an orange version of Matilda. I originally planned to just dye the inside of the cake orange, but found orange glitter whilst I was there. Then once the cake was made, I decided that perhaps the cake itself would benefit from a splash of colour...? Matilda got her dancing shoes on and painted the town (and my kitchen) orange!
It was an absolute (fitting eh?) nightmare to cover in icing, but the finished product had a certain 'slapped in the face with a slab of glittery bundt' look about it.
If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times. Workers need cake. Without it, blood-sugar levels could get dangerously low, people could pass out (halting work) and as a result a company could quite easily go under...
Play safe. Eat cake.
