I’ve fallen a bit behind in keeping the website up to date with my latest cakes so I’m adding the most recent two together. A white chocolate mudcake covered with white chocolate ganache and coloured fondant then decorated with a hand modelled Mario topper and plenty of Mario decorations.
The second cake is a NSW Blues football. A milk chocolate mudcake hand carved in the shape of a football, covered in milk chocolate ganache and covered in fondant. All decorations on the cake are hand cut from fondant.
A Captain America Shield Cake – my first task for this cake was to research who Captain America even was and what his shield looked like! With that sorted, I baked a round m milk chocolate mudcake and covered in milk chocolate ganache. The cake was covered in fondant and then decorated with coloured fondant to look like Captain America’s shield.
I’ve had a few new items that I’ve tested out on this cake and I must say that I am very happy with all of them! Firstly, I have changed brands of fondant and am soooo glad I did. I am now using Bakel’s which I find to be perfect in every way. It is soft and not sticky which makes it much easier to work with. It also has a nice taste. My next new product are little foam cleats. These little pieces of foam with an adhesive side, once stuck to the bottom of the board, make it easy to pick up the board and also much easier to put ribbon on the cake board edge. The last of my new items are my funky alphabet cutters, these are awesome! I love them. A little fiddly but definitely worth the effort.
