Wedding Cake

This cake was something totally different for me, something out of my comfort zone I guess you could say.  It was a challenge that I enjoyed. The bride and groom were a lovely young couple who wanted something different, not standard fondant covered cake and wanted the rough look, I guess you might call it.  They showed me a few different designs/styles they liked and this was the end result.

A three tiered mud cake (peppermint, citrus & passionfruit).  Each tier was covered with white chocolate ganache then decorated with white chocolate shards.  The florist topped each layer with some flowers matching the brides posie.

The chocolate shards were hand made and this was a challenge on it’s own! Working with very fine chocolate with the temperature rising was a delicate job.  I had to move quickly!

I was happy with the end result and the flowers just finished it perfectly!

A Princess Party

Being a mother of two boys, girly cakes are not something I get to do too often, so I was very excited to be asked to create the princess cake.  It was my first dolly varden cake so I was a little nervous.

I baked a white chocolate mud cake in my new tin.  Getting the amount of mixture right was a bit of a challenge bu the amount I made was pretty close.  Levelling this cake also proved a little tricky.  The cake was covered in white chocolate ganache then covered with a pretty pink fondant, what else for a little princess! The princess head and torso was placed into the cake.  I made the princess a little crown from wire and beads and also a necklace (obviously this part of the cake is not for eating!) Her gown was decorated with royal icing which I piped on.  I enjoyed every minute of this cake! They also had some white chocolate mud cup cakes to accompany the cake.
