England Cake (England vs USA)

After months of anticipation and excitement, the World Cup has finally arrived. For their first match, England had been drawn to play against the USA, and with football.....or soccer...being the most popular sport in the England, and the fastest growing sport in the US, this had all the makings of a great match. To mark the occasion, my in-laws invited everyone over to watch the game, which was a perfect excuse for me to break out the cake pan!

I decided to make an England flag cake. I've never used royal icing before so it was a bit of a challenge. I made two rectangle sponges and sandwiched them together using buttercream and jam. I rolled out shop bought royal icing to decorate the cake. The finished cake was a little messy, but not bad for my first attempt. And whilst we couldn't say that victory was sweet, at least the cake was!

And here's a snap of myself in all my festive glory:

This doesn't look messy at all! you a natural! The team I usually root for didn't qualify this year.(sweden) :( But it looks like you had fun. and for the brownies we have been keeping them refridgrated because it's been rather hot here but I usually leave stuff out all the time and it's totally fine at room tempature.
