Hamish Blake Will Try to Bake Sonny an Impossible Birthday Cake on Saturday, and We're Invited to Watch
Hamish Blake has shared his intention to bake another incredibly difficult cake for Sonny's sixth birthday live on Instagram on Saturday night.
Writing on a cute pic of Sonny whispering in his dad's ear, the LEGO Masters host quickly outlined the requirements for the birthday cake: it be based on the Cave of Wonders in Aladdin, the cake must glow, and it must glow specifically from the mouth and eyes.
Hamish explained that yet again he's pledged to make Sonny "whatever birthday cake his heart desires using only determination and blind optimism! (And cake)".
It's a tradition that started with baking a firetruck cake on Sonny's third birthday, and then Slimer from Ghostbusters for his fourth. Last year, Hamish attempted to make Sonny a velociraptor cake that could open and close its mouth, roar, and even be able to whack people with its tail.
Sharing a photo of their family, including daughter Rudy, and the cake, Zoë Foster Blake wrote that Hamish had stayed up until 2 a.m. and succeeded in creating a dinosaur cake with only "hubris, cake, sticky-tape, rice bubbles, marshmallows, tons of icing, optimism, whisky, and a phenomenal Lego dinosaur frame from Brickman".
"I think we all agree he has reached Peak Cake™️ and next year it's an ice cream cake from Maccas."
Not so! This year, Sonny has requested a cake like the cave where Aladdin finds the genie's lamp: "The mouth glows. The eyes glow. Sonny has asked this faithfully be recreated." Apparently, Hamish plans to use a very powerful torch to create the glowing effect. We can't wait to see how this goes.
He'll be sharing all the fun of the baking experience tomorrow night on Instagram, but there's no pressure to be there on time: "It's ok if you're late though, last year I got sidetracked watching The Life Aquatic and kick off was delayed 2 hours.
"I'm gonna give it my best Sonny Boy!! #BlakeItTillYouCakeIt."
Quoting the much-loved Disney film, Zoë commented: "Seek me out, the diamond in the rough, diamond in the rough (to fade)."
We wonder if we'll see Zoë coming to save the
day cake tomorrow night!
