Thandi ordered a very special birthday cake for her friend – an active sportswoman who is also a “girly girl”.
The bottom square tier is my fabulous red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. I covered it with bright green sugar paste and decorated it with hand made sports equipment – tennis racket and balls, squash racket and balls, badminton racket and shuttlecocks, and a hockey stick and a ball, and a tiny pair of sneakers, all in white and gold.
The middle tier is chocolate cake, with chocolate butter icing. I covered it with a pink sugar paste and decorated it with white royal icing piping and sugar paste flowers, which “spilled” down onto the green tier.
The top tier is vanilla cake with white vanilla butter icing, covered in yellow sugar paste and decorated with a marbled blue sugar paste bow.
Our dear friends B and her SexyG got married, and we got to go to KZN for the weekend to share in their nuptials!!
The cake was a gift from us to them, and I decorated it with grey sugar paste hearts and some programming code piped in royal icing to compliment the couple’s passion and their business!
It was so much fun and it was SO special to be able to share their wedding day with them!
Out of curiosity, I Googled “blue iris flower” and I was simply astounded by how many different kinds of iris there are!
Anyhoodle, mine is faaar from realistic, 😛 but I am rather pleased with my first attempt nonetheless. Its a surprising amount of work to make one let me tell you! I will make it darker and frillier the next time I make one though.
Using royal icing, I made two open roses and a bud, rose leaves and some jasmine flowers and buds. I finished them with dusted colours and steaming, and then fashioned them into a type of corsage.
Cazpix Photography hosted a competition a while ago, and the second place prizewinner was the lucky recipient of a dozen chocolate cupcakes with chocolate butter icing.
I also made the bright pink Cazpix Photography logo out of royal icing mounted on a fondant disc to top the cupcakes as per Caz’s request.
