You can always be guaranteed a great glass of champagne or two and loads of laughs when celebrating anything with Ivana and this was definitely the case when she celebrated her birthday with her friends in July. Her birthday cake had to be just as elegant, beautiful and as fun as she is, so I added a creamy chocolate drizzle to this dark chocolate ganached cake. I enhanced a few of the dreamy drizzles with some champagne sugar pearls and then added the sugar pearls and champagne choc rocks to the base of the cake to complete the elegant look. I moulded soft dreamy layers of cream sugar paste into ruffled flowers with pearly centres and added these whimsical flowers to the top of Ivana’s cake. We toasted a wonderful friend with delicious champagne, snacks and decadent chocolate cake. Here’s to another great year Ivana filled with loads more love and laughter.
Once again Wendy ordered this cake with a great deal of thought and caring for her friend Faith’s 50th Birthday. She wanted a delicious and pretty cake in Faith’s favourite colours; orange and yellow. The cake itself had a layer of vanilla sponge and a layer of passionfruit sponge covered with an ombre pale orange to white vanilla buttercream. I melted Compound Candy Melts with some cream and gently poured over the top of the cooled iced cake and allowed the chocolate to fall in the drizzle style so popular at the moment.
Orange ruffled flowers with bright yellow centres, yellow rolled roses, Aragon Forget Me Nots and lime green leaves finish off the top of the cake and after wrapping a pretty orange ribbon around the board I sprinkled Aragon Choc Rocks, watermelon to finish off the presentation of the cake.
Wendy’s tribute words about Faith: “Faith is a ladies Pastor. She is a good friend and has really been there for me. She prays for me always, is so encouraging and has stood by me when things have been really tough. She has a real caring heart”.
