The 1st weekend of June was extremely busy, not only did I do the wedding cake with the big sunflowers, I had 4 other cakes that weekend. Here they are not in any particular order;
This one was for a close friend of mine Maria who celebrated her 50th and hubby and I happened to be able to attend a surprise party for her. I was thrilled to be able to make her a cake for such a momentous celebration.
I decided on a very girly cake in black & white with a punch of hot pink. It reminded me of Maria. The 2 tiered cake is chocolate Guinness cake filled with white chocolate mousse. The bow and brooch are made from gum paste, the flowers are fondant with added pink sugar pearls for centers.
It was a great party and Maria was surprised, she had no clue. Fun times had by all.
The next cake for that weekend was for a friend who was expecting twins. Friends and relatives celebrated by throwing a baby shower in her honour. "Two Peas in a Pod" is the theme for this cake which was chocolate cake filled with chocolate mousse.
The 2 little babies are made from gum paste, all other design elements are made from fondant.
Julia has since had her twins, 1 healthy boy and 1 healthy girl.....all set and super busy I'm sure.
This next cake for the same weekend was also for a baby shower but this one they knew it was to be a little pink bundle.
2 tiered cake in pink, green and white with a buttons and bows theme and cute pair of gum paste Mary Janes to top off the cake. All other details are done in fondant.
The last one for the weekend was made for an 80th birthday celebration. A very simple 3 tiered cake with a gold crown to honour the Queen of the family.
All details done in fondant with the exception of the single flower topper which is done in gum paste.
Well that concludes the 1st weekend in June 2015. I'm getting closer to getting caught up. So please check back soon.
