Happy Anniversary, My Wonderful Companion: Giant Angel Slice

Happy first anniversary to my dearest companion! You have been a rock and support to me in awful times, and a wonderful friend to enjoy the good times with, too!


In celebration, I made my companion his favourite kind of cake, although in much larger dimensions than usual: an Angel slice!


For those who don't know, and Angel slice is a Mr Kipling favourite: it's a sandwich cake, with a white and a pink layer, filled with a vanilla flavoured cream, and iced with white and pink fondant. Usually, you buy them in packets of four slices. The cake is super light and fluffy, like a fondant fancy, and the filling is sticky, sweet, cheap, and nasty.

As such, I made two 4x8 inch (10x20 centimetre) cakes using this recipe scaled up to two eggs—one left plain, one coloured with a hint of pink—and sandwiched them together with some vanilla flavoured buttercream, before topping it off with a simple fondant style icing of 8 parts icing sugar to 1 part melted butter, thinned to a nice fondant consistency with milk. I coloured some of it pink and drizzled it on the top.


Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the cake before he and I tucked into it as a naughty anniversary breakfast, but I did take a picture of what was left!

I also made a nice wall hanging of envelopes which I folded from fancy paper, each containing photographs commemorating each month of our first year, and pictures from the weekend when we first started dating. I was super pleased with it!


Here's to many more years with you, my dearest lovely.... ^_^ x
