Well I am up bright and early today, hubby has gone off to do a painting job and I am going to do the washing, well I need to make the most of the weather isn't if glorious (if a little too warm for working in the office)
Well I thought I would update you on the latest from my kitchen, I received an order for an 18th birthday cake the design was mostly left up to me, the only request was to make it girly. So, I thought I would try my hand at a two tier birthday cake here are a couple of photo's I think it worked really well. The cake itself is made from vanilla sponge filled with strawberry jam and butter cream. I covered both cakes in a thin layer of marzipan as I feel it gives a better finish when putting the fondant on. I then covered the larger cake and board in white fondant, then covered the smaller one separately and stacked on top. I can get away with this as the cake is not too heavy and will not need supports underneath which would be placed in the larger cake. I then made the little balls in rolled yellow fondant and cut out flowers in the same and there you go. Since having my cake decorating classes I feel loads more confident and am not too phased when trying something different, in fact I find it a very enjoyable challenge. Will let you know what my next cake is soon.
