The big, big cake

R and I are running a conference in Glasgow during April and we are having a competition involving a cake. This is one very serious cake as it is designed to serve 300 people. This is one of the four layers – my Mum made me laugh when she said it looked like a rug!
I’m not sure I would have got into this if I had realized the sheer physical labour it took to make a cake for so many people. It has 64 eggs in it, 16 lemons, 4kg of butter and I reckon will take about 5kg of icing to cover it.

I just hope people want to eat it because I can’t think what we would do if we have to take it home with us.
