A dear friend of mine celebrated her 40th birthday with a lovely intimate dinner with her family and closest friends. It was a great opportunity to try my hand at gilding a cake in silver leaf, a technique I’ve long admired but never actually performed myself.
Luckily my friend Jo loved the idea and thus this cake was created, just for her.
Created for a sophisticated christening celebration, this cake is based on an original design by Couture Cupcakes & Cookies.
Top tier is vanilla cake filled with white chocolate ganache, bottom double barrel tier is a dark chocolate mud cake filled with a dark chocolate ganache.My first time using a stencil too!
I love making cakes for my family… there usually isn’t a brief, I have free reign over the design and subject matter – and I love seeing their reaction!
– especially for the children. They are also a great opportunity to try techniques I havent yet had the chance to test. So, I make the most of it!
