I was fortunate enough to attend a couple of Planet Cake courses held in Melbourne – their Mad Hatter cakes are simply amazing and I’ve been dying to go to this class for ages. Thankfully PC are now holding classes all over Australia which makes them more accessible to us lucky Aussies!
The incredibly talented staff from PC imparted their knowledge, skill and humour and after 2 days our Mad Hatters were complete!
I still can’t believe I’ve made this cake..! It’s structure and various decorating techniques are quite complex and its not util you see how this is done that you can truly appreciate the skill required to complete one of these cakes to this standard of finish – the finish that is synonymous with Planet Cake! There was carving, ganaching, applying stripes and making bows.
I had a ball and met several fellow cake maniacs, which was great too! Everyone did an amazing job and as you can see by these pictures, the talent is truly alive and well in Melbourne!!
This cake was created to celebrate the christening of a sweet little boy, Panayioti. The cake has a hand made gumpaste teddy atop the top tier and fondant stars. Stripes feature on the bottom tier and his name is made from fondant blocks – placed on the board.
Two tiers of chocolate fudge cake, filled with dark chocoalte ganache and covered with rolled fondant.
