Chow Down to Eurovision 2016 - Come Together with Cake

The Eurovision 2016 final is only a few hours away and increasing thoughts of will it be Australia, Russia, France, Bulgaria, Austria or Cyprus that we will all be meeting at next year.


2014....on fire

The Eurovision logo cake is a bit of a Chow Down to Eurovision highlight and this year is no exception.
I have made a cinnamon cake as an homage to Swedish buns and then decorated with a basic icing and a whole heap of fondant and metallic food paints.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Eurovision and my all our favourites wins!!
