Fleur the Flamingo

This is the cake that nearly wasn’t !! The whole thing collapsed on the morning of the collection! I thought I had got the room cool enough but nooooo. I managed to rescue it and the client was very happy, much to my relief!
Its a 9" chocolate orange cake with a chocolate orange ganache filling. The ombre effect was done in buttercream. At the time of collection, it looked more like a tie-dye T-Shirt but the client was still happy with it. Fleur is made from RKT and luckily she remained un-scathed during the ordeal. She was quite big but I was impressed she didn’t damage herself after the fall :0)
Before the collapse I actually enjoyed making her and so glad I got the photos then
