Equipped with “many beer and no idea” Hamish Blake has managed to pull off a legendary Cars-themed birthday cake for his son. Hamish’s wife, Zoe, shared his extraordinary efforts on Instagram, proving her hilarious hubby is not only funny, but also quite the whiz with fondant!
As most parents do, Hamish and Zoe spent the night before their son’s third birthday making the final preparations for his party. Hamish’s job? To make a Mack the Truck cake for their Cars obsessed little man, Sonny.
This is the Mack truck cake my husband made (the night before, starting at 8:30pm, equipped with many beer and no idea) for our Disney Cars fanatic of a son. Sure, I heckled, and no, I didn't think it would work, but that's cos I suck at cakes/art/icing/things requiring patience and fine detail, and happily outsource birthday cakes right on out. But he did it. And it's perfect. Especially since he'd a) never heard of fondant before, b) didn't Goog a step-by-step for guidance, and c) didn't throw a huge shitfit and then a rolling pin by 8:47pm like I would have. He made a promise to a boy, and he fulfilled it, and he even pulled off that ludicrous edible-hinge (not pictured) bullshit that had me eye-rolling for Australia. Good dads doing good deeds deserve good talk, so good on you, Hamie Oliver. And for MY birthday I'd like the hovering genie juuust as he wafts out of the lamp from Aladdin. K Thx 😘
Despite his wife’s reservations, Hamish impressed the pants off everyone with his Mack Truck cake, complete with an edible hinge. What’s even more incredible? He did it without Googling instructions (and having never even heard of fondant before).
As Zoe writes in her Instagram post, “Good dads doing good deeds deserve good talk, so good on you, Hamie Oliver.”
From the photos it looks like the cake was a big hit! We’re certainly impressed. With Blake bubba #2 expected this year, we’re sure that Hamish will be on double birthday cake duties for many many moons to come.
Hamish isn’t the only celebrity-dad-by-day-cake-master-by-night. Check out Chris Hemsworth’s amazing cake which he made last year for daughter, India.
