This was a TradeMe order, the birthday boy really loves this minecraft black/white cat, and wondered if I could put it on the cake!
The cake was made gluten free, vanilla flavour with buttercream filling and topping, the cat was interesting, very simple yet I had to incoperate 3 shades of grey and black to create this image. Maybe I could have made it bigger but the tail took up more space than I had imagined, so had to shrink the kitty!
First of all, yes, I’m still around! Haven’t had any orders recently, so am posting one of my home-experiments instead.
We were at Logan Brown a few weeks ago, and had this absolutely amazing Lychee Creme Brulee, that I thought I should try making!
So after taking out 50ml of my cream and exchanged for lychee syrup, and putting 1.5 pieces of lychee in the centre of each creme brulee before pouring in the custard, here it is!
I must say it wasn’t as amazing as Logan Brown’s, but I’m getting there, will try again next time when I have lots of egg yolks 🙂
Yes, yet another belated cake post!
The birthday boy is apparently very particular about his T-Rex, which must have a red head, yellow body, pink and purple hands and feet. This made for a very colourful combination! I made my own decision to change the back of the dinosaur to red and the front to yellow, so as not to have a clashy “cut-off” line between the red head and the yellow body. Fortunately the boy was happy with it!
Personally I liked the multi-coloured border 😛
What a great trade, we all enjoyed the cake very much and my little boy loved the T Rex on top. Thank you.
Christmas is near! A fruit cake is of course called for, and I bake 2 types of fruit cakes: rich ones, for people who likes them for the richness; or a lighter one, which is more buttery.
Fruit cakes must be ordered 2 weeks ahead for the flavour to merge, or a month is even better.
