Rocket chiffon cake

Tony, who’s ordered birthday cakes for his sons since I could remember, ordered 2 cakes this time, one for each son whose birthdays were just a few days apart.

He must have lots of faith in me (lol), ordered a cake 2 days before he needed it, on a Monday night! Haha, gave me a bit of a freight, but how could I turn him down, rushed to the supermarket during my lunch break at work on Tuesday, and after teaching got straight to baking the cake at 7pm. I was pretty proud that I managed to finish the cake just before midnight!

I made a 7″ vanilla chiffon cake with the rocket picture Tony had provided, filled with whipped cream. The picture of the rocket had a navy blue background, and since that was hard to make, I went with the darkest blue I could produce.

After finishing the cake, I went online to check the email Tony sent me, and there it was – 7″ chocolate chiffon cake with whipped cream – right in front of me. CHOCOLATE! How did I miss that? Well there’s no going back, he’s picking up the cake the next day at 4:30pm, I immediately emailed him and apologised for the oversight. I offered to salvage it by sprinkling chocolate on it, and thankfully he was nice about it and was happy with the chocolate sprinkle, hence the chocolate shavings you see at the bottom of the cake – I know, it was a lame save but better than nothing!

At least they said they all enjoyed it 🙂

BTW this photo wasn’t the best I’ve taken, I literally got home at 4:25pm, took out the cake, sprinkled the chocolate around the cake, got the camera, by the time I set up the cake to take a photo, Tony’s car pulled up – I took about 3 snaps and hoped the photos came out ok – this was the best one, lol!
