In my previous post last weekend, I presented my winning 'Cakeopoly' cupcakes and 'show-stopper' Magic Roundabout cake. There will be another lovely post to follow, all about the awesomeness that is 'Cakeopoly', but as I'm on the verge of opening my very exciting online cake shop for the people of Swindon (and hopefully eventually the nation!), I wanted to show you the Magic Roundabout cake properly, so here it is!

Until this weekend, I'd never entered a baking competition before. I've been baking and sharing my cakes with friends, family and co-workers for a couple of years, but complete strangers judging my cakes was totally new territory - I had no idea how good or average they tasted to someone that didn't 'have' to like it.

What better way to celebrate Doctor Who's 50th anniversary than with some wibbly wobbly timey wimey nomworthy cakes?!
