Sweet 16 gala

Last week we made a yummy cake for Vanessa who's 16th birthday was on the 10th, but last night she celebrated her Sweet 16 in style at Le Jardin and we were delighted to help make her celebration more memorable.  The cake Vanessa and her mom decided on was to have 6 cakes displayed in a very traditional style.  We gave her a modern twist on this traditional setting.

The picture was taken at the venue as it all had to be set up there.  Her cakes consisted of  1 14" vanilla cake with lilac tinted vanilla mousse, 1 - 12" choc Guinness with Bailey's cream, 1 10" lemon cake with lemon curd, and 2 10" red velvet with cream cheese.  The 8" topper was a dummy cake as requested by Vanessa as she wanted to keep it as a memento along with the Sweet 16 doll on top.  The doll was provided by Vanessa's mom.  Vanessa held court of 8 girls and 8 guys which are depicted on the stairs.

All flowers were made from gum paste and dusted in various tones of lilac and purples. Each cake was covered in white fondant and we added a little purple food colouring in the fountain water.

We wish Vanessa all the best in future years.  This was a lot of fun to make and put together for her and we hope Vanessa and her guests enjoyed her cakes.
Happy Sweet 16 Vanessa!
