Welcome to Music Around the World – Cake Notes!
At October 1st the world celebrated International Day of Music!
Music Around the World – Cake Notes is a cake collaboration, and I’ve created this cake for this beautiful moment.
About my piece:
The choice of the music genre of my cake is based on my roots. I was for a long time thinking of doing a cake that was, in some way, allusive to the beauty of my homeland and interestingly comes this opportunity. I did not hesitate and chose to represent the Bailinho da Madeira, a Madeira Island folklore well known through all world.
At the top, bailinho is represented by de cap each dancer uses in their head, as well as the typical Madeira boot.
The top tier represents the colors and the beautiful traditional dress skirt pattern, accompanied by yellow cord that closes the vest of the women’s clothing.
The main image was inspired and adapted from an original illustration of Madeiran João Egidio, fully hand-painted, as this is one of the techniques that I love the most. Surrounding this part of the cake, there are dozens of flowers that symbolically represent the beautiful flowers of Madeira, here are subtle and white in order to harmonize the whole cake.
The base of the cake was covered by hundreds of pieces of fondant representing the beauty of the typical Madeiran sidewalk, where many times the folklore groups dance in the streets of Funchal.
