Bulldogs Football

My second attempt at a football! This cake was for a client’s father who loves football and wanted a football cake for his favourite team, the Bulldogs.

A dark chocolate mudcake which was hand shaped like a football.  I have to give my husband some credit here as he helped me with sculpting the shape.  Once sculpted, the cake was covered in dark chocolate ganache and left to set. Next for the fun bit, covering in fondant. Colouring, cutting and covering for hours!  I was happy with the end result and judging by my client’s reaction, they were too!

Thanks Kym for allowing me to create a fun cake for your dad!

Cocktail Cake

Last weekend I was busy with two cakes.  The first one was a cocktail cake.  I was asked to create a cake for a cocktail party. Firstly I must give recognition to my inspiration behind this cake.  This cake was not my own design, I found a picture of a cake by Pauline Clifford of “Truelovecakes” and this gave me the inspiration for this cake. My client loved Pauline’s cake also. Thank you Pauline, I have enjoyed recreating your cake!

This cake is a 25cm dark chocolate mud cake, covered in dark chocolate ganache and pink fondant.  I applied some pink shimmer to the fondant to give it a lovely glimmering look. The glass is a real cocktail glass which is filled with fondant balls, some home made bling and pink osterich feathers.  The girl has been hand modelling using modelling paste.

I made twelve dark chocolate cupcakes to accompany this cake with pink buttercream frosting and some pearl cashous for decoration.

This was a really fun cake to make! I had a bit of drama with my hand modelled girl, he leg fell off and I had to recreate on the morning the cake was being picked up which was a little nerve racking but we got there in the end!

Hope you enjoyed your cake and your cocktail party Lydia! :)
