A good start to 2012!

This week my task was to create a Farewell cake for a miner who is also a farmer who was resigning from his mining job to go fishing!  The brief I was given was a naked man with red hair  in a boat with a sheep.  Hmmm, OK I’m up for that challange!  Modelling people is somewhat new to me.  I’ve not had much practise with them and was a little nervous.  I got straight to the task at hand and modelled my naked man.  I realised that the technique involved in getting the “bits and pieces” of a naked man was well beyond my talent and decided I would nicely place a hand modelled farmer’s hat over the particular area in question. My client was happy with this as quite honestly had not put that much thought into this area hehe.  I also hand modelled a dinghy, sheep, fishing rod, life ring, fish, “Gone Fishing” sign, rocks and seaweed.  I baked a 25cm round caromello mud cake and covered it with milk chocolate ganache and blue marbelled fondant.  I was quite happy with the end result, as was my client!  See my testimonials page for her response! This was such a fun cake to make and I enjoyed every minute if it :) :)

My next project was 50 mini cupcakes for a Hawiian themed Hen’s Party.  I always love mini’s! I made a batch of vanilla cupcakes in red, pink and yellow cases.  I decided to test out my Christmas present (new piping tips) and chose three different tips.  I made three different buttercreams, red boysenberry flavour, pink strawberry flavour and yellow lemon flavour.  I piped buttercream onto each little cake.  I then topped each mini cuppie with a hand made fondant flower.  What cute little cakes!

I’ve also had four more bookings for the coming weeks.  What a great start to 2012!

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.
