Floral fruit cake

So I’ve made some Asian fruit cakes (ie. soft springy vanilla cake with fresh fruits on top) and although my 1st attempt was pretty good (see here) my second attempt was way below my own standard and I felt quite bad for the customers I made it for, I thought I should rectify my album with this 3rd attempt!

Tony has been a loyal customer who’s ordered a couple of times from me now, and this time it’s for his mother in law’s birthday. She wants something colourful, fruits with lots of flowers coming down to the sides (his exact words) so I made an attempt to have flowers coming down to the sides! I played around with a popular decoration technique specifically in the Taiwanese Taro cake, although it’s not as pretty as I had hoped (purely technical problem) but hey, it’s not too bad right?

I’m glad I made it so colourful, it really wasn’t as busy as I thought it would, and it was well received yet again, thanks Tony! (The Chinese characters reads “Happy birthday”, which was also requested by the birthday girl!)
