Wedding cake

It's been a while between classes. This is what I made yesterday at Bake Boss, in Richmond.

And here's a close up of the top:

This was really simple and straight forward. The whole thing was done in 6 hours. Take away the lunch break and demonstration time, and this would be easily achieved in 4. Provided the flowers were made well in advance, of course.

Paint tube

I made this cake to celebrate a friend's new artistic venture - It's based on a Planet Cake design, and created using their carving and ganaching technique. The cake was home made coconut with lemon white chocolate ganache.

My hand painting isn't great

Piping gel gave the fondant the look of wet paint

The crimped end is one of my favourite bits

Modern cakes - "Herbie"

The final cake for my Modern Cakes 2 course was a car. Most of the class carved their cars into convertibles. I went with Herbie the Lovebug.

Created using a Wilton car pan, loads of ivory, red, black, blue and white fondant, and edible textas.

Handbag cake

Week two of Modern Cakes 2 saw us assembling handbag cakes. Most of the class went with a Chanel type bag, with quilting and monogram. I wasn't overly fussed with that, so decided to make the type of bag you'd be happy taking to Spring Carnival.

Sadly I didn't have time to get the good camera out, let alone mess around with lighting, so the photos aren't my best. I guess that means I'll just have to make another one. If only we lived somewhere big enough to set up a permanent food set. A person's got to dream!
