3D novelty cakes are challenging and so, so much fun to make. When asked to replicate a musician’s much loved lute, my initial reaction was ‘Yay!’ but then closer to crunch time of actually creating it I was thinking “How??” !! Too late for that now isn’t it!
It was my wedding anniversary this weekend – and I spent it with Handi and Fran at The Cake School!
I have so been looking forward to doing this course… a 3D standing cake, entirely edible – all but the tail. Awesome.
These cakes were made for siblings celebrating their birthdays together with a magic themed party. White rabbits, sparkling, glittery stars and a gorgeous palette of turquoise, fuschia and black created a magical event!
My baby girl turned 2 and we threw a party which featured her favourite colour – yellow – and her favourite thing in her little world.at the moment.. a ducky! In Greek the word is ‘papaki’… it warms my heart to see her little eyes shine and exclaim ‘papaki!!” when she sees a duck of any description. Too cute for words!
I adored making this cake.. somewhat unchartered territory as I haven’t made many 3D animal cakes but I am so happy with the result!
Allow me to introduce you to my Chameleon… completed during a 2 day course at Melbourne’s “The Cake School”.
When an opportunity comes up to learn from one of the best cake artists in the world – you grab it. You just go. Thats it. No questions. Margie Carter is, simply, amazing. Uber talented, patient, generous with her knowledge - sugar artist, sculptor, painter and a lovely, lovely person to boot.
