This cake was created for a christening. It is a combination of a couple of Confetti Cake’s – of NYC – anemone cake designs. The client sent me a picture and wanted this cake but with that amount of flowers in this colour… well, the instructions were clear! This was my first time making the beautiful anemone flower and I must say I loved making them and will most likely use them again – soon!
I love it when someone contacts me for a cake that isn’t your run-of-the-mill type of thing.Don’t get me wrong, I love creating all sorts of types of cakes for my clients but sometimes you tend to repeat the same style as it is so popular, again and again and again – I tend to become a little jaded sometimes!!
This client didn’t really know what she wanted so I pounced! How about a painted design? As soon as I saw the invitation I knew what the design would be and, luckily, the client trusted my vision and left it up to me. Yay!
What I love the most is the tattoo-like effect this design projects.The couple were very happy so, mission accomplished!
This was my first large sculpted cake. It is actually to scale.
I have a red Fender Strat (from my wild, rocking youth… um well, not quite) and I traced the shape out on baking paper and went from there.

The frets, knobs and tuning keys are all made of fondant. Read more →
