Because [livejournal.com profile] picowrimo is great, but there are other interesting things,too.

And it was a fairly successful undertaking, if I'm allowed to say so myself.

Firstly, the closed box, and then the underside:

Then a few pictures about the same box, opened, to show the various layers (4 altogether):

And now to the less successful activity of the week...

The inside isn't that bad, actually:

But I completely messed up the frosting:

Granted, this isn't the mandatory marzipan covering of the cake, as this was a trial attempt before I'd do the real thing for my guests in two weeks' time, but it does look really ugly. Ah, well, it tastes just fine, and now I know what I shouldn't do next time.

The inside looks pretty tasty! And frosting is always such a hit or miss. Hope you have more luck with the marzipan for your guests

And man that box looks great, especially opened up when you can see all the detail work

I love the box! It was a lot of fussy work, but I enjoyed watching it take shape piece by piece on each passing day.

As for the cake, it is tasty, so if nothing else helps, we'll eat it with our eyes closed. *g*

This actually call it an exploding box on YouTube nowadays because it unfolds rather abruptly when you take off the lid, but I was afraid some idiot might think it has something to do with terrorism or whatnot.

Love the boxes! As for the cake, as long as you got the flavor right - you can always master the frosting or decorating. Taste is the most important!

Not when you're trying to impress your guests, it isn't. I hope the second try will turn out better.

I'd eat it happily! I do love Battenburg cake, and get it so rarely...

It'll be a looong hop, but cake is usually worth it :)
