Show us your bakes

Devoted to Great British Bake-off ? Who isn't ?

Baked a cake this week for husband's birthday , inspired by Nadiyha's floating POP can cheesecake showstopper. As one of his favourite tipples is Guinness and the chocolate cake contained a pint of the black stuff then it had to be Guinness can.

I had fun and games trying to suspend it on the end of various poles of varying lengths ( skewers, straws, chopsticks to name but three ) let alone attempt to slather the stick in frosting to make it look as if the pint was being freshly poured into the cake from above. I managed it eventually and I've sent a piccie in to Jo Brand's Friday night show - An Extra Slice . Fingers crossed they show it.
