Blog on updating standard trim

I was given free reign on the design of this one which I love being able to do!I opted for chocolate brown and pale blue fondant buttons, fondant ribbon and bow, bunting made from butcher’s twine with fondant flags on wooden skewers, and a super cute hand crafted gumpaste baby elephant with pale blue accents.

Lucky I always carry a big batch of them with me 🙂 Tags: 1st birthday cake, cake, cake decorating, cake design, Cake Making, cake sharp edge, cakes, fondant, fondant cake, ganache cake, monkey cake, sugarpaste, sugarpaste cake Posted in Birthday Cakes, Cake Making | 1 Comment » Happy New Year everyone and welcome to 2016!Fortunately many of the recipients of those free cakes liked my work enough to be converted into paying customers, especially once they had children!Over the weekend I actually got to attend an event where I made the cake.The ganache coating allows me to use a pretty thin layer of fondant and still get a lovely smooth finish with a nice sharp edge.I very rarely get to see my cakes get cut up and served these days.
