So you've just spent some time following a cake recipe to a tee and then through sheer bad luck your cake breaks when you lift it out of the tin (or you drop it, oopsy). It was for your dinner party, or a special dinner for two. What do you do?
Don't fret. I got you covered. Grab some of these (mine are from desserts I've bought in the past and I just keep them because they're glass and re-usable). Or you could even use champagne glasses (or anything glass really. I've even used a jar before)
Press some pieces of the cake into it.
Pipe a pretty rose on it.
Optional: Put in a chocolate stick.
Voila. All sorted. No one would be wiser and people would actually think you must have slaved over making these. Win win :)
p.s. My cake didn't break. My cake just wouldn't ok? :)
The pieces were leftover cake from another cake being leveled off before being frosted.
Sneak peak at the actual cake:

Plus some matching cupcakes:
