Guess who finally made it onto my blog!! lol
We had to make 2 boxes so here are mine, my favourite Fraisier cake :) I wish it could have been done much cleaner but unfortunately I didn't have time due to the day lost because of the hurricane...
This was meant to be my second favourite cake the Black Forest, but I had to make do with these cute lil coffee beans instead!
Here is the main stand. The main pillar is a marshmallow column which can be seen in the background behind the middle lollipop. The cake stand is a round piece of pastillage that I punched holes out of and for each one, created a scalloped edge so that once dried, I could hang little cherries from to make the piece a little more interactive.
The base of the stand was done by marbling pastel shades of pastillage
All sweets and candies all made with coloured pastillage
I did mention this was to be a cakestand yes? So guess what this is!
We were given Styrofoam cakes for this project due to the lack of time, I cut mine in half and a hole in the middle. Then came the fondant. It is always hard to colour fondant dark brown! It takes alot of colour to do so and alot of time to knead it all in. It was not until I was about to cover the cake when I realised I had no idea how I was going to do it because of the hole in the middle!! Eventually I developed a technique to do so and then came the issue with making realistic chocolate glaze~ Eventually it all came together thank goodness! The sprinkles were tiny pieces of pastel pastillage~~~
Woot! It stands!!
