All kippers and curtains…

… yeah, I looked that phrase up 😉 It’s very fitting, though – with the kippers being bland butter cream, and the curtains being the flashy structure and noble-looking fondant exterior.

I followed a certain Dr. Oetker’s recipe closely, having had a lot of good results with them so far. Every run of luck has to end somewhere, or sometime, I suppose. It’s just a bit sad that it happened to be a birthday cake, of all things…

No way will I post the recipe here, since it was such a disappointment with regard to taste (the best thing were the chocolate peanuts hidden inside). I admit that I was and still am fascinated with the fundamental idea of a hollow surprise-cake, though; and so I have planned out a vastly improved version of this, where I am going to replace the absolutely tasteless butter cream with something yummy, and – even more importantly – the fondant (YUCK, seriously, HOW does anyone eat that stuff!?) with almond paste, or just a thick crust of chocolate 😀

So, for now enjoy the pictures, and imagine it tastes as lovely as it looks…
