For one of my best friends 25th birthday, she held a party for 50 friends in her funky apartment in St Kilda East, Melbourne, Australia (you can see the cake in action and the party in full swing in my good friend Stina's video here vimeo.com/79017860). The roof was filled with helium balloons, the walls with streamers, and a remote DJ in Romania blasted Pulp and David Bowie through a live video feed. Friends brought multicultural treats - Persian Dip and Brigadeiros from Brazil were scoffed by hipsters, improv comedians, hikers, travellers, seventies flower children and women in wigs. I made a Uruguayan celebration cake (well, actually three) with a few personal twists. Layers of coconut sponge were sandwiched with vanilla cream, dulce de leche, peaches and vanilla meringue.
