First one was for my husband's workmate's birthday. This is the fourth cake their office has ordered from me within a few months. I was told this was the best so far. The hero in this cake is really the wonderful frosting.
|Chocolate chiffon with Strawberry Whipped Cream Frosting and Filling|
|I learned how to fan the strawberry from the show Junior Masterchef!|
|Instead of making a 9" round, 3-layered cake, I made a 10" round, 2-layer one which was just as good.|
Third cake was for my son's friend's 9th birthday. The boy loves Pokemon, hence, the cake topper. I love this one because it is very clean and simple. And of course, the Chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream is so, so good.
Last cake, which I finished just today is frosted this time with Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream. The one who ordered this requested for flower decorations and nut topping. I used toasted macadamia nuts...I think I may have just overdone it a bit....let's just hope they like macadamia...
I moulded the gumpaste roses a few days ago. They turned out quite well despite the fact that I opted not to use any flower cutters or forming tools.
Well, that's it for my cakes. I hope to take a break from baking for a while unless another order comes in soon. That is most welcome of course....
