Barney cake and tagged

I made this barney cake for a little boy. This cake is a chocolate butter cake filled with chocolate ganache and barney is covered with purple butter cream and the square cake is covered with fondant. This cake is not one of my favourites. Anyway the birthday boy liked it though.


Palidor tagged me. Her blog http://crazyasiangal.blogspot.com/ has interesting recipes either sweet or savoury. This tagging involves listing seven random facts about myself. So here we go :-

1. I love to decorate cakes especially children's cakes. (I bet you already know this though)
2. I'm a born romantic
3. I enjoy travelling and wish to go to Japan one day.
4. My favourite colour is red
5. My favourite food is pizza.
6. I like cartoons.
7. I'm always on a diet without much success. :(
Now I have to tag seven other blogs. Here they are :

Here are the rules for tagging:

Give seven facts about yourself.
Tag another seven blogs by leaving a comment on their blog and letting them know they were tagged and listing them (and their blogs) on your blog.

Haha wow Barney takes me back to a much simpler day. I'm glad he's still alive and kicking it :) Beautiful job.

Always fun to learn neat things about each other. I second you on the pizza, traveling, and I've been told about the romantic part (crazy, right?)
