This Softball Birthday Cake was a ‘homerun’ of a cake for Megan’s birthday earlier this year. It is always fun to have a challenge to create something new from chocolate modelling paste and this softball glove and ball were new for me. The closest I have got to anything softball has been to admire the photo accolade of Megan being chosen to play for Gauteng Softball while she was a school softball athlete. The chocolate modelling paste was easily formed into this glove … I had a real one to guide me for the shaping, stitching and lacing … my stitching tool came in handy and strips of black modelling chocolate were perfect to finish off the lacing detail.
This sport has remained a passion for Megan through her years of study at university and it was such a fun idea her mom had to use this as the theme for her celebration cake. It was a pleasure to create this cool cake for you Megan.
What a zingy way to start our 2017 sugar year with this delightful Lemon-Chello Figurine course with Vicci Clemitson-Martin of Victoria Bean Bakery. When you gather 6 very different bakers, 1 superbly talented sugar art teacher, a peaceful environment, loads of chocolate paste, isomalt, Flexique, a generous helping of fun and a dash of heat (ok maybe more than just a dash!) you have the recipe for an amazing class. Not only did we create this zesty figurine, but we learned to work with Flexique edible fabric, pulled sugar and blown sugar which was a first for me.
Lemon Chello Figurine Class with Victoria Bean
An extremely happy, slightly tired batch of bakers after our 3 day Lemon-Chello Figurine Class! We not only worked hard but played hard too! Thanks again Vicci for once again rocking our sugar world, and putting some heat into our sugar souls. Our year just got off to a perfectly sweet start.
