Hamish Blake Thinks He’ll ‘Crash and Burn’ While Making Sonny’s Latest Pikachu Birthday Cake
May marks a very special month in the Australian calendar as it includes Sonny Blake’s birthday. Sonny is the eldest child of comedian and LEGO Masters host, Hamish Blake and Go-To founder and children’s book author, Zoë Foster-Blake. And, if you happen to follow Hamish on Instagram, you’ll know that this means it’s time for cake.
If you’re new to the trend, here’s exactly what happens. Every year on Sonny’s birthday, for the last four years (not including this year! — when kids can actually talk and eat cake — Hamish Blake has attempted to make a cake for his son’s birthday. But not just any old cake. The cake is specifically a creation that Sonny has requested.
He also does the same for his second child, daughter Rudy. But Sonny’s birthday is where the trend started. Not only does Hamish show off the final creation via Instagram stories, but he also gives us an inside look at the process behind these dazzling baked creations — previous years are still saved as highlights, if you want a trip down memory lane.
This year, Sonny has requested a Pikachu cake, coming out of a Poke Ball, reaching out for a high-five. A simple request. Oh, and there needs to be jelly in the Poke Ball, and it needs to go “pfffft” when it opens. Hamish might need to call on some LEGO Masters help, if we’re being honest.
Even though the podcast host claims he’s due for a “crash and burn” on a cake, we’re guessing that based on previous years, he’ll be okay. Interested in seeing how he goes? He’s starting at 7pm (May 7 on Instagram Stories — or as he says, probably around 8-8:30 pm.
