Portal cakes have been done ad nauseum, so apologies for adding. But Neil asked for some for his birthday and I am nothing if not obliging. Also, people usually only do the gateau 'cake is a lie' cake*, whereas I did all three, if that makes it any better?
*if you don't know what this means, don't worry, me neither really.
All of the cakes..
This here's the little portal man, doing his thing through lemon cake with lemon curd filling and cream cheese icing atop.
The cake is a lie meme is probably responsible for more black forest gateau eatage than the whole of the 70s. This one is made from cherry brandy, as there is apparently a city-wide shortage of kirsch.
Mistakes were made, lessons were learned. The companion cubes turned out all wrong, the icing was a mess. I feel shame that people will be seeing these. Still they probably still taste fine - red velvet with a cocoa buttercream covering and marshmallow fondant (again).
