There is quite a story behind this creation.
This cake designed around Bella’s favourite Disney Princess – Belle. I wanted roses – of course – I wanted a tall structure to symbolise strength, I wanted soft yellow pleats and glittering jewels that denotes a fairytale and I wanted this cake to be another reason for Bella to smile on her birthday. You see, Bella has been through a tumultuous year – a devastating leukaemia diagnosis – aggressive and rare – countless days in hospital preparing for and enduring a bone marrow transplant, the dizzying heights of being told she was in remission only to have that crash down when only a short time later being told that the cancer had returned. There was nothing to be done. Well – never say never. Bella is taking part in a drug trial and is responding well – the future still isn’t certain but she is happy, her parents can breathe just a little easier for the moment and she has an amazing family and incredible support network around her and her family that beggars belief. It was an honour to play a small part in her birthday celebration. Bella is 8! She is an inspiration and her smile is as bright as Belle’s gown!
5 tiers of caramel mud cake filled with dark chocolate ganache.
Red sugar roses with their falling petals atop a hand painted entwined rose garden which encircles the cake and the soft yellow pleats of Belle’s gown swaying around the bottom tier. Its the stuff of fairytales. isn’t it…
