My blog n My Cake is Taking Shape

I am so excited! I finally found time to explore some of the stuff here in the menu (No, I don’t mean the food menu but rather the blog menu!) Added some widgets to make this look more like a blog, maybe?

Anyhow, here’s the latest creation – a beer barrel fondant rainbow cake. Sorry, you can’t really see the rainbow cake – forgot to take a picture when it was being cut as we were all too busy scrutinising the characters!

Beer Barrel Rainbow Cake

Look! The beer is overflowing!

It may seem quite paradoxical – what’s a pregnant lady doing with beer?? Well, there is really no hidden meaning in this – just a fun cake for the 3 lovely people whose birthdays fall in September!

The cake is a rich vanilla butter cake, coloured for the rainbow effect. The overflowing beer and foam? Well – royal icing. A truly sweet cake for the sweety folks!

Have not gotten used to taking photos while in the process of assembling the cake, but managed to catch a couple of shots ..

the "raw" rainbow cake

ok, so there is a shot of the rainbow cake after all, though the colours are not so obvious from the exterior. It’s made up of a 6″ and a 7″ cake, weighing a hefty 2kg plus!

the beer barrel

The beer barrel is completely covered now. There are actually 2 layers of fondant here – the base layer, and the top layer made of of wooden planks. And of course the last thing to do is to add the figurines and well wishes!

About justbakeit

I am a stay-at-home-mum, having the most supportive hubby and two lovely girls. I first started baking more than 10 years ago, with one of the first few attempts being a birthday cake for my elder daughter. It was a simple and amateurish looking one, but I will not forget her delight at seeing it! After that, I found a new me, a new passion. I have been baking with much gusto, attending classes, immersing myself in the internet and the world of culinary books. I absolutely love to bake, but after a while, baking is just not enough. I cannot stop marvelling at those beautifully decorated cakes in showcases and cake magazines. So from baking , I ventured into cake decorating. Entering the world of fondant and different icing, colours and dimensions are quickly added to my bakes. There is so much to learn, so much to explore in art of cake decorating. Every cake presents a new challenge. Would love to use this blog to share my experiences and make like-minded friends!
