How to make a cake that looks like a running shoe

CakeIt was the Wakefield Distance League season final this evening and a great time was had by all.  Did I win? Not a cat’s chance but I was more than pipped at the post for the over 50s title by my darling wife!  Family competitiveness aside, I am really proud of her and it’s persistence that’s the key so the title is truly deserved.  I remember the first time we ran in the league around 8 years ago she won the main Women’s title even after missing the first race of the season!

As for me?  Well since I have been on performance enhancing drugs (a.k.a high-strength iron supplements on prescription) I finally seem to be running better so I am really looking forward to the Great North Run at the weekend!  Maybe in the next Distance League season I can take back the Over 50s title!

Finally , to even out matters I did manage to win the cake competition (after all, it is a running club)!  If anyone is wondering how you make a cake that looks like a running shoe and you really want to make one, well research it on the Internet, it isn’t rocket science (but it does require a good deal of patience)!

“Jesus answered, ‘It is written: “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”  Matthew 4:4 NIV
