I disappeared completely from the web again to work on an interesting cake project. I had a client order a 3-tiered birthday cake who celebrated her 50th birthday last Saturday at the Polonaise Center. It was an exhausting job but the cake turned out elegant & beautiful.
I started making the sugar flowers the week before. I colored the roses in shades of lilac, deep purple, pink & mauve and sculpted them in their various stages. Here's a shot of some of the sculpted flowers:
I must admit that I struggled assembling this cake. Since I crumbcoated it with a Swiss Meringue Buttercream, the fondant didn't adhere as strong enough as I expected. I was kind of intimidated by the whole thing. I was a little worried too because the deadline was getting closer.
I finally made it to the events place 10 minutes before the start of the reception. The catering head and I managed to assemble the cake onto the table as quickly as we could. I even got to take some pictures before running off to my hungry hubby who was equally tired as I am!
