Dance with the cake.AC Nairobi 5th Anniversary Celebration_0547.jpg

  • How was the Atlassian-themed recipe was chosen:
    We had a poll with a few Atlassian community Nairobi members on how we should celebrate the half a decade we have been around besides food and drinks, the cake featured prominently.

    • So fondant cake was inevitable to cater for transportation and temperature change.

    • Also to ensure a great taste and longevity in case we decided to keep for our friends who would consume later Fruit cake was settled on. 

    • Last but least it was decided the cake would be 5 levels tall to represent 5yrs we have been in existence. 
    • The cake's outer fondant layer was also decided to be blue to represent Atlassian's official theme color.
  • The actual recipe so we can include it in an Atlassian Community Cookbook:

    1. 4382g of wheat flour
    2. 3416gms of margarine
    3. 2625gms of brown sugar
    4. 56 eggs
    5. 7 tablespoons of vanilla essence
    6. 154gms of baking powder 
    7. 14 tablespoons of mixed spice powder
    8. 7 tablespoons of cinnamon powder
    9. 1000gms of soaked mixed fruits
    10. 6000gms of fondant
    11. 5000gms of buttercream
  • A summary of how your bake went (highs + lows, how it tasted, who you shared it with)AC Nairobi 5th Anniversary Celebration_0535.jpg

  •  

    • Set your oven 180°C and warm for 15 minutes
    • Bake for 60 minutes (180°C)
    • Few challenges:
      • The architecture of ensuring 5 levels hold as it is transported we used standing sticks were used to ensure stability.
      • A fondant color scheme that reflects the required results. 
    • The cake was shared with over 200 Atlassian community Nairobi members and each one of them enjoyed it at least from the feedback we received.. 
  • A photograph of your final creation

The cake was terrific in an absolutely tasty way. The story behind it makes me feel proud for having witnessed the cutting and the consequent 'devouring'.

I'm proud to be a member of this community.

Hand over the 🥇.
