    Here is my third entry. Its a traditional sponge recipe which I then split in three and coloured before baking. Its iced with buttercream and the decorations are fondant (except the basket which is made of chocolate).

    Thank you!

    It took about 40 mins to bake the cake but probably about 2hrs to decorate I think. A much better (and way more fun) use of an afternoon than doing work...

    There are some really excellent entries here! I don't stand a chance but I thought I would share the cake that my friend and I made. I think that those of you who are familiar with internet memes will appreciate it. The colours aren't as vibrant as we hoped (damn those natural food colourings!) but it tastes so good!
