Holidays

Girl's Christening Cake Well, I’ve just returned to work from having a week off.  What better way to spend my holidays then experimenting with cakes! ;)

I experimented with marbelling mud cake.  I’ve wanted to do this for  a while and with my brother choosing this creation for his 40th Birthday Cake (pictures to follow in the next few weeks – end of October), I thought it best to test it out before the real thing.  I had my personal taste test team test it out and all responses were good.  The cake was beautifully moist and tasted devine even if I do say so myself!

Next I decided to do some modelling.  As I’m sure all other cake decorators would know, this is a very timely exercise and requires patience (something my five year old does not have a lot of and could not quite understand why it took so long to get the end result) I modelled a pink teddy bear and blocks and some blue booties.  I then moved on to create a black & white spotted dog (Jake’s personal favourite) with a special little red ball personally created by my little man Jake.  I then attempted Santa, well he was quite time consuming and still needs some work.  I found that he dried out too quickly (or possibly I was too slow :P ) and therefore didn’t hold together well and the final product looked dried out – not at all how I would have hoped.  Well definately be trying him again because he is extremly cute!!

With the modelling done, now to create a beautiful cake.  I thought Christening Cakes suited as designed both a girl’s and a boy’s.

Piping was next, using Royal Icing, I piped reindeer, ducks, rabbits and breast cancer ribbons.  All in all, I quite enjoyed myself and got some good results. See for yourself..

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.
