But far, far away from the land of digital and offset processes I did my own printing ~In cake. It was for N and R's birthdays. They were born on the same day 4 years apart.
I used silicone word moulds sold online at SiliconeMoulds.com. Moulds that were designed by a dear blogger friend Sarah Jane. You must visit her lovely blog, siliconemoulds.blogspot.
Silicone moulds is an online store that sells silicone bakeware moulds for cakes, jellies, chocolate, soap and many other uses and is the only store, online or otherwise, that sells silicone word moulds.
The only decoration I did was a dusting of icing sugar over a piece of plastic grid to get the grid effect.
When you're happy and you know it clap your hands. Happy birthdays to our dearest N and R.

The cake I made is one from my favourite cake 'chemist', Rose Levy Beranbaum. Her recipes have never failed me and this chocolate cake is as good as it gets. Fudgy, chocolaty and never too sweet.
The recipe ~Rose Levy Beraabaum's
85 gm cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups boiling water3 large eggs (150 gm without shells)
300 gm plain flour
434 gm light brown sugar
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt227 gm unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 170 C.
Grease and flour 2 9" round cake pans.
Whisk cocoa and boiling water until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
In another bowl combine egg and 1/4 of the cocoa mixture.
In another bowl combine dry ingredients and mix on low for 30 seconds. Add butter and remaining cocoa mixture. Increase speed to medium and beat for 1 1/2 minutes. Add egg/cocoa mixture in 3 batches and beat for 30 seconds each time.
Pour into pans and bake for 20-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
For these moulds I had only to make one recipe of this cake and pour the batter slightly more than half way up the sides of the moulds. When baked leave to cool completely in the moulds before turning out.
Tips ~ Before turning the cakes out pull the sides of the mould away from the sides of the cakes, gently, to loosen them up. The cakes will then literally fall out of the moulds when you turn it out.
Turn the cakes the right side up and slice off the mounds to level the cake and then turn them over again so that the bottoms are facing upwards and are displayed as the top of the cakes. Decorate as you desire.
