One of the highlights of my year is a visit to the National cake exhibition in Birmingham which takes place once a year.  Last years exhibition in November was no exception.  I could hardly wait to get there.  On the train I met so many like minded enthusiasts all going for the same purpose of checking out the latest cake equipment, gain ideas and watch demonstrations by specialists in the cake industry. 

I was not disappointed!  There was soooo much to see, sooo much to learn and so many ideas to take home. This moon cake is from one of the newly released books by Patchwork cutters. It caught my eye and I could not wait to try it out.  The opportunity came when Chino's mum told me that he needed a cake for his birthday party in December. I told her that I have got the cake for him and he will be the first one I would have baked it for.  She agreed and here it is.  I'm told that he loved it and so did all his friends.
This cake will suite any young boy and will be the talk of the party.
