Thong Cake

Here is the second cake from the weekend just gone. A thong (the shoe guys not the underwear!!, this cake is for a little girl!).  My client’s daughter was having a beach themed party and wanted a thong cake for her.  She knew exactly what she was after, a thong shaped cake which is purple with green and purple flowers.  I was quite excited about this cake as I have not made a thong cake before!  After baking a vanilla cake in a 20cm square tin, I allowed this cake to cool.  I drew a thong shape onto a piece of baking paper which was the size of my tin and cut this out to use as a template.  After cutting the cake to shape, I coated in vanilla buttercream and allowed to set.  After colouring the fondant and cutting some fondant flowers, I began to cover the cake.  Using a lighter coloured purple, I cut a thin piece of fondant using my template to place on top of the thong.  Using some wire covered in fondant, I created the thong straps which were put into place.  I then topped the thong with some decorative flowers.

Now, time to finish off the board.  The appearance of a cake can change dramatically with the finish of the cake board.  I had seen in the Planet Cake book, they make a thong cake and finish the cakeboard with a “sand”.  I created a similar effect by colouring some buttercream and adding raw sugar for texture.  I am happy with the end result as was my client’s little girl.  Happy Birthday Jordy, hope you had a great birthday :) :)

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.
