Birthday Fruit Cake with Orchids

My client’s mother loves my fruit cake so she get her one for birthday each year.  This client is a regular of mine and always gives me free reign on the design of the cake, my only instructions are fruit cake and the size required.  I do ask questions such as her interests, favourite colour etc to give me a little guidence as sometimes free reign can be a lot harder than exact instructions! This time we went for a 20cm fruit cake.  As usual, I covered the fruit cake with white chocolate ganche which is a perfect match with the fruit cake which has white chocolate chips through it.

As I was told my clients mother likes flowers, I decided to go with a flower I’d never made before to improve my abilities of flower making.  The orchid was my choice.  Thank goodness once again for YouTube!  You can find some really great tutorials on there!  I enjoyed every minute of my orchid making and ended up with three flowers which I was very impressed with, even if I do say so myself ;)

I decided to go with something a little different with this cake and make it into a ladies hat.  So I covered it in a brown fondant,  wrapped a piece of black ribbon around the base of the cake and topped it with the three orchids and a few brown fondant covered wires made to look like twigs.

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.
