This cake was for a lovely lady who was celebrating a milestone birthday. It was a large cake, to feed 60 or so party-goers so I had lots of room to make assorted fondant flowers and place them on a buttercream wreath. It kind of felt Victorian to me, with the off white fondant backdrop and a few chenille-type dots. Most importantly, the birthday girl loved it!
Having been a graphic designer in my former life, I love the challenge of doing a logo cake. Cutting fondant with an Xacto blade is something I enjoy. I also happen to love the restaurant I was doing the cake for and really like the logo too, so it was a pleasure all round! Spoiler alert: Just to keep everyone on their toes, it was chocolate cake, not carrot!
My version of a fondant dahlia, in various colours. Very summery, fun, bright cake!
This cake was made as a donation to raise funds for the Madagascar School Project. They have an annual cake auction as a fundraiser and I’m hoping that my small donation will make a difference to these school children.
My friend Joan is retiring and I was asked to bring a cake for a wee celebration at the office tomorrow. Her favourite flavour is mocha and she loves flowers so mocha roses seemed just the thing. Twenty years at one place is pretty remarkable in this day and age. I hope Joan has a wonderful time in retirement.
