No ONE else will ever know the strength of my LOVE for YOU. After all, you’re the only one who knows what my HEART sounds like from the inside…..Happy Birthday Maaa…..I love you.
One of my last creations for 2013, and this one is dedicated to my Ma.
When Aryan’s class teacher contacted me in early October regarding a cake for her, I was excited. Having tasted my cakes before and seen some of my work, she was so kind and generous with her compliments. She said " You love what you and and I would love for you to create my cake". As if that didn’t floor me, she went on to say, " I leave the design to you. I love shoes and the colour pink and I also know that you love to make flowers". Oh My God! a cake artists dream come true!! I know, how lucky was I??
I wanted the shoe to stand out, one of its kind and after a bit of online browsing,I found this gorgeous pair on a online wedding blog (apologies, I don’t remember the designer’s name!) . This was also the first time I was making a shoe. Armed with no shoe molds,and a few online tuts I slowly began to make the shoe. Every bit of progress was like reaching a mile stone….and after working everyday for 6 days on it, it was ready. When my little go to artist – Anya saw it on day 2 she said, “mum this one is going to be the best ever”. And on day 6, she covered her mouth and looked at the shoe, speechless for a while and then finally said " I wish I could wear this".! Thats all that I needed.
I love making sugar flowers and these flowers, berries, hydrangeas and leaves were no exception. I wanted to keep them white and thus chose to highlight them in shades of pink.
This cake was truly a delight to make and the best part was to see the expression on Kristine’s face when she saw her cake- indescribable- every cake artists envisions that.
The Cake: Triple chocolate mud layered with French vanilla Swiss butter cream and iced with Belgian dark chocolate ganache. The shoe, flowers, berries and leaves handmade with gum paste.
