Tahnee’s 18th Birthday Cake

My foster sister celebrated her 18th birthday last weekend and of course I offered to make her cake.  I have recently purchased “the mat” and thought this the perfect time to test it out.

A family members birthday is always an opportunity for me to try something new.  I’ve love tall cakes so decided that this one would be tall.  As it was for a family gathering, I used a 15cm tin as any bigger would have been excessive amounts of cake.

To get the height, I tiered two cakes together.  One was chocolate peppermint mud and the other, keeping in tradition of trying new things with family, was boysenberry mud.  I wasn’t overly impressed with this one.  I didn’t have a recipe, so based it on a white chocolate mud and adding boysenberry flavouring.  It tasted nice but I didn’t think you got that “wow” factor with it.  It definately needed more flavour or a different recipe all together.  I wanted it to have a wow factor!

Each cake was covered with ganache. Boysenberry with white chocolate ganache and peppermint with dark chocolate ganache.  I then tiered them together, making my tall cake :)

OK so decoration using the new “mat”.  Tahnee likes black and dark colours however I wasn’t keen on doing a completely black cake.  I’ve always wanted to do a leopard print cake so decided to go with a purple & black leopard print.

I actually had a bit of a shocker with covering this cake. A couple of the items being that I firstly put the fondant on upside down….yes, I put the print side down! What was I thinking???? THEN, I dropped and tore the fondant! Oh my, I did have a shocker! Thank goodness it happened on a family members cake!  I do think the end result was not bad considering the problems I encountered! Tahnee loved her cake and it tasted great so that’s the main thing :)
