Clifford the Big Red Cake

I’ve been swearing at this all evening, the kitchen looks like someone’s been murdered, my hands are stained pink – apparently indelibly – and I’ve spent far too much money on icing equipment and a ridiculously expensive discontinued cake tin.

Tomorrow is the Minx’s ‘official’ birthday and I’m hoping that she’ll remember that a week or so ago she requested a ‘Clifford cake’ (goodness only knows where she got that from).

At least it ought to taste lovely.  I’ve used the chocolate cake recipe from the Macrina Bakery Cookbook (Macrina is the most incredible bakery just up the road from us here in Seattle) and the bits I trimmed off the bottom were very, very delicious indeed.
