Would you like Parmesan with that??

With a lot of hype around our Spaghetti Bolognese cake on our Facebook page of late, we thought we would share with you the pictures from the night of night's last week......the Spaghetti Blogonese Grand Finale!
It was such an exciting night with Rococco in St Kilda announced as having the best Spaghetti Bolognese in Melbourne. Sarah Pinch, Miss Spaghetti Bolognese herself, put on a fabulous spread at YGAP in St Kilda with all things Italian themed and inspired, where she finally got to announce the winner of her year long search to find the best Spag Bol in town. But following the long awaited announcement, the lime light soon shifted to Meko to reveal the centrepiece of the night, the cake! It was a big hit with all the guests enjoying a yummy slice.
When we were asked earlier in the year if we could create a cake that looked like a bowl of Spaghetti Bolognese we were a little taken back to say the least! Thoughts rushed through our minds of how we would create the pasta, the sauce, the mince and even the Parmesan cheese! One thing was clear though, the bowl would have to sit upon a red and white checked tablecloth that would be the slab of cake. So to work we went creating spaghetti with fondant and a pasta maker and making bolognese sauce out of coco pops and red chocolate!
We must say, it really was a fun cake to make and we were pretty chuffed with the result. Needless to say, not only did it look great, but tasted fabulous too!

Sarah is now to embark on a new blog, Hungry Chica, where she will follow the new craze of Mexican restaurants across Melbourne. Now what sort of cake would be in store for that I wonder?.....perhaps a Taco cake?!! We're up for the challenge!

A big thanks to Sarah for giving us the opportunity to take part in this special event. And lastly a huge thank you to Dani from Spit & Giggle for snapping and sharing these beautiful your work Dani!
