This is a cake I’d made a couple of years ago. I know it’ll bring some cheer to those of you longing for warmer weathers. I for one, can’t wait for summer to end. I think I’ve had my share of the heat. This cake is really simple to put together. This cake is covered with marzipan and fondant and decorated with royal icing and gumpaste flowers. Everything is made from scratch. I will try and put up a step by step post when I make this again. It will also dress up an Easter table well. I think it makes a lovely gift for Mother’s Day too.
It is a heart shaped cake with a basket weave pipping to resemble the basket, dotted with gumpaste daisies and royal icing pipped leaves, finished off with a bow made out of curling ribbon.
Over the weekend, I got a call for an order of a couple of anniversary cakes. This client was very easy to work with. She wanted something floral on a white background, she was also okay with me using fresh flowers if I was short on time. It was very short notice since she needed the cakes for Monday evening so I had to stick with something simple yet pretty to look at. Since she was so understanding of the short notice, I decided to go all out and do simple sugar flowers for her anyway. Well, that meant a super busy day and a late (**yawn**) night. But I must say I was pleased with the outcome. Never had I imagined that such simple blossoms could lift a cake from being plain to something pretty. And the best part is, she loved them. Client delight (not just client satisfaction) is what makes it all worth it.
Everything was made from scratch. The base was a rich, dark fruit cake, covered with a layer of homemade marzipan and homemade fondant. The flowers were made of fondant.
I was free to use any colors I wanted. So for the first cake, I opted for some bright spring – summer colors.
Here’s a view of the side of the cake –
For the second cake, I went with pink. One can never go wrong with pink.
