I was asked to make a shrek cake by a friend whose boy loves Shrek. It was a big challenge for me. Mind you, I’m not a cake decorator and have never taken any cake decorating course. My cake decorating skills and tools are bare minimum. I love baking and learn cake decorating from you tube, books and copying people’s picture from internet. I believe if anybody can do it, so can I. Although, my cake is still far from professional looking but it’s pretty good.
The cake itself was a special chocolate cake. It was a special cake because it didn’t have any egg nor nuts. It was made for my friend’s son whose allergic to nuts and eggs. I was really pleased to learn that birthday boy was very happy. He was soo happy that he’s able to eat his birthday cake. His father told me that he often sad whenever he went to a birthday party because he was unable to eat the cake. This time, he can eat the cake and also he ate Shrek’s head.
