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! :)
