Aashiya just had her birthday not long ago and as it was her last day at the pre-school, her mother kindly decided to shout everyone a cake on her daughter’s name! (we always need a few mothers like this at schools!)
She wasn’t too fussed regarding the design, just said she wanted a chocolate chiffon cake, 12″ and she loves pink, purple and red.
I personally decided to work with the pink and purple theme, and as she wasn’t too fussed with what design I come up with, I thought an elegant rosette cake would look fitting for a little girl.
I am very happy with this design in the end, sometimes you don’t know what it will look like until it’s done! It always looks one way in your head and comes out slightly different – in this case I am glad it came out even better than I had imagined 🙂
With the fairy cake sitting next to this, I must admit that this doesn’t look amazing, but Vinita wanted a simple one to bring to her daughter’s day care centre, so she said to do whatever I want, just make it pink/purple.
The cake itself was actually made by Vinita, she brought the cake over straight from her oven (it was still really hot when it reached me!) and she was quite nervous about the cake but it turned out really well.
I ended up spending the whole Saturday (12 hours) making 2 1/2 cakes (what a great way to spend a stormy day in!) and I think I did pretty well, considering how slow I usually am! The Philippine flag cake was mainly red and blue, which worked really well for the purple cakes I had to make, so I just dyed a bunch of them red and blue, and mixed some together to make the purple, perfect! No random colours sitting there staring at me at all!
This was an 8″ x 13″ cake!
I was doing my grocery shopping when my phone rang. I was quite surprised as the caller was from Australia, but answered it anyway. Turned out this woman found me online and as her mother lives in Wellington and was turning 90, she was hoping to order a floral cake with matching cupcakes to celebrate, and she won’t be arriving in Wellington until the night before.
As her mother and her father are of old age, I delivered the cakes to their residence the night before their celebration.
She asked for a plain vanilla cake done in a floral style, “With lots of light pink flowers, something suitable for a 90-year-old lady”, so I played around a little with pink, and she did say I can add other colours other than pink, and came up with this.
They were pretty happy when the received the cakes, so just waiting to hear back from them 🙂
