This 10 inch square sponge cake was created last week. It needed to have a clean and simple but intricate stylish design for Bill’s 80th birthday party.
Firstly I consulted with the client about what kind of style, detail and colours they required which then followed with a computer generated design sent by email for approval.
It’s always best to ask about the person whose birthday it is; what do they like to do, follow, hobbies etc., and then it gives you an idea what to make for the cake.
To give you an idea of the scale (how small) this design is the plane was about 70mm long. All created using modelling paste onto a board covered with sugarpaste, this was produced a few days before covering the cake so it gave me plenty of time to get it right. The board was then attached to the cake with royal icing which meant that prior to cutting the cake, the design could be removed and saved for memories.
Techniques used in this design involved hand modelling, hand painting and piping and therefore take time and care to reach the desired effect.
I will always endeavour to reply to your enquiry within 48 hours. If you have not heard from me in that time it suggests that there is an error with my mailbox or server which I am currently unaware of and I would therefore ask that you try to contact me by phone or text. Thank you.
Another week, another birthday cake, this time I had been asked to decorate a surprise birthday cake for my sister in law. I had been given free reign over the design and I decided to make it very feminine and flowery for her.
I started by cutting out the number 30 to cover with flowers. I made each flower individually by hand and arranged them to fill out the shape of the numbers and once they had hardened I set them in place in the centre of the cake.
To tie in the design I trimmed the edge of the circle with a line of similar tiny flowers and then added a band of larger flowers beneath. Finished off with the ‘Happy Birthday’lettering around the base board.
