1st Birthday Cake

This weekend’s cake was for a little girl’s 1st Birthday.  Her mum had an exact idea of what she was after and hopefully I accomplished the correct end result for her.  She was after a two tier, chocolate mudcake with a pink & purple theme topped with a little tiara for her little princess.

We decided on a 20cm bottom tier and 15cm top tier, both milk chocolate mud (perfect for the little ones), both of these were covered in milk chocolate ganache and covered in fondant.  The bottom tier was covered in pink fondant and given the quilted effect with silver cashous for decoration.  The top tier was covered in purple fondant with “Jayda” in pink fondant aswell as pink fondant butterflies as decoration.  This top tier was topped with a little silver tiara.  The cake board was covered in pink fondant also.  The finish the cake off, I piped pink royal icing around the base of each cake.

I hope Jayda enjoys her 1st birthday! :) :)

Birthday Fruit Cake with Orchids

My client’s mother loves my fruit cake so she get her one for birthday each year.  This client is a regular of mine and always gives me free reign on the design of the cake, my only instructions are fruit cake and the size required.  I do ask questions such as her interests, favourite colour etc to give me a little guidence as sometimes free reign can be a lot harder than exact instructions! This time we went for a 20cm fruit cake.  As usual, I covered the fruit cake with white chocolate ganche which is a perfect match with the fruit cake which has white chocolate chips through it.

As I was told my clients mother likes flowers, I decided to go with a flower I’d never made before to improve my abilities of flower making.  The orchid was my choice.  Thank goodness once again for YouTube!  You can find some really great tutorials on there!  I enjoyed every minute of my orchid making and ended up with three flowers which I was very impressed with, even if I do say so myself ;)

I decided to go with something a little different with this cake and make it into a ladies hat.  So I covered it in a brown fondant,  wrapped a piece of black ribbon around the base of the cake and topped it with the three orchids and a few brown fondant covered wires made to look like twigs.

Christening Cake

My first ever hand modelled baby! How exciting!  My clients was after a Christening Cake for their youngest daughter.  They were after a chocolate mudcake with the colour theme of white, soft pink and a bit of silver.  They wanted a slight religious feel to the cake by adding a cross, a baby on top and the name and date on there somewhere.

We decided on a 20cm milk chocolate mudcake which I covered with milk chocolate ganache.  I covered the cake and cake board (which I made with my new table saw :) ) with white fondant.  I hand modelled my very first baby and covered her with a blanket.  I used a great tutorial on You Tube to show me how to do this.  I put a silver cross on the side of the cake for the religious feel and followed through with the pink & silver theme with some pink & silver fondant balls around the bottom of the cake.  I finished the cake off with the name and date piped on top. Hope you had a lovely Christening Day Annabel :)

Cake was a huge success. We all loved it & the flavour was to die for. It was so good to look at that it seemed a shame to cut into it! Everyone wanted to know who made it. Richy kept the boat and contents and fish as a souvenir. So again, a big thanks. You did a wonderful job.
