Today GSL and I worked on our 3rd collaboration cake for her grandparents wedding anniversary. She arrived early and we set to work making different buttercream icings.
We wanted the cake to have a Christmasy feel and look like gifts – GSL wanted the top tier to be a gift and I thought it would contrast nicely with a quilted second layer.
I was really happy with the finished product and I really hope GSL’s family and grandparents like it too!
Growing up we loved getting a bunny cake for our birthday. Not to long ago I found this jpg of the bunny cake my mum used to make. (Unfortunately, I’ve lost the reference so if anyone knows where this came from please let me know.)
This week I have the pleasure of making 2 special cakes! The first is for a stag and doe – it’s going to be a lemon cake with chocolate fondant with fondant circles.
The second cake is a surprise theme cake for my husband’s 30th birthday! I’ve been planning this cake for a while and just crossing my fingers that it will turn out the way I want.
Tonight I’m going to start sculpting and making curly “ribbon” for the cakes and also start the baking! I can’t wait to see these cakes come alive – I will keep you posted on their progress!
