So a friend of mine asked for a favour, someone he knew needed a huge birthday cake for twin boys, turning 16 years old… The next day!!!
So apparently since I seem to have a knack for trying to pull off the impossible, of course I decided to help out!
In just about 6 – long- hours, I made those cakes.
One vanilla cake and one chocolate cake, iced in pure butter icing and bordered and decorated with fresh cream. The discs and letters are all made of fondant, and I used edible pearls for the 16 and the corner decorations. There’s also a liberal sprinkling of fairy dust, 😉 .
Adding that magical sparkle to all decadent sweet treats!
There are times when a friend or client will see something he or she likes and will ask me to recreate it.
Although I try my best, it may not always be exactly the same I suppose. Nonetheless, the end result was quite lovely and I was happy with these cute cakes.
These in particular were custard cakes, covered in custard icing, and covered with fondant. All the decorations are edible and handmade aside from the ribbon and cake board.
I hand painted the green vines and leaves on the cakes. I really enjoyed that part.
Well, there you have it, my ‘midi’ cakes made specially for a special person.
