    Cake?!

    I am baking a cake for my works charity cake bake and I wanted to ice our company logo on the top as a joke but I am not sure what sort of cake to bake!

    What sort of cake goes best with icing? It would have white / cream icing on top and then my company logo in colours on top. I was thinking a victoria sponge but that is a bit dull!

    Ta!

    buy a photograph cake from a supermarket. this will give you a large cake with white icing ready to decoarte. noone bothers about the cake, just have fun decoarting it.

    Any idea how much these cost? I had a look at Tesco online but couldn't see them!

    We are suppose to make the cakes ourselves but ssssh, no one will know!

    don't know how much it cost. but if you opened it up and put some of your own butter icing inside noone will ever know.

    i know asda have got them. they are approx 12" by 6"

    Or... make the cake yourself and add one of these to it:

    think we heard you now

    Its easier to ice a fruit cake, you can use ready made marzipan and icing them you can buy the logo printed onto icing from ebay. Or Asda and Tesco both sell plain fruit cakes already iced that you could add the logo to.

    A Madeira cake will work if you cover in buttercream and then "roll out icing". You can buy this in the supermarket already rolled for a circular cake. You could use a spare piece of roll out icing to make the logo and then put that on top (in case there are any mishaps with doing the logo straight on the cake!) Good luck whatever option you choose.

    Plain ornery sponge. Do it with a butter icing filling (Or stiff whhipped cream) - with a layer of chopped fruits of the forest as well.

    Dust with icing sugar and do the logo in chocolate powder thru a stenci.

    Blast! I'm drooling now.
