Engagement Cake

An engagement cake made as a surprise for Juliana and Nigel. Juliana’s mum asked for a girl, a sailor boy and a pink bicycle in a garden setting…. So that tested my construction skills, but was good fun to make. Inside was rich dark chocolate cake and chocolate ganache.

I had “fun” finishing the cake on the morning of collection because I left the cake in the fridge overnight and when I put the fondant on the cold cake it sweated… oops…. so it took me about 6 hours to complete when it should have been a case of covering, placing everything on it quickly and being done in an hour or so. Lesson learned :-)

Oh – the cake was green, but my pictures were rushed and are a bit washed out because the couple came to collect just as I was applying the ribbon to the board.
