Can you tell what Jon’s favourite colour is!? Jon’s girlfriend Sheena ordered a red velvet cake and a selection of cupcakes for his birthday celebrations, and in chatting to her I suggested we make the red velvet an orange velvet cake instead, since the colour isn’t what makes it taste so good!
I ringed the base of the triple layer, cream cheese icing covered, orange velvet cake with orange sugar crystals, put sugar paste lettering on spelling out Jon’s name, with a sugar paste “happy birthday” banner, and then formed a “31” with bright orange non-pareils! Jon and Sheena were very happy with the cake! I hope they took pictures coz I have no idea what it looked like inside!
Sheena also ordered cupcakes! The chocolate cupcakes are topped with chocolate butter icing and some more orange non-pareils, and the vanilla cupcakes are iced to look like my signature soft-serve cupcakes with flakes, but with orange and white two-one icing instead of pink and white butter icing!
