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!
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 ..
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 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!
