Bright and Bold- to a Stunning Classic!

This week I have had some great cakes- and still some to come!

I have a cake to go out his morning to Dayboro- and one on Monday morning too!

I sent Steve- solo- to deliver a couple of soft iced cakes early on Saturday morning- as I was busy seeing clients- then after my clients-my mum and I headed off to deliver the rest of the cakes for the day!
First stop was the Powerhouse at New Farm. Yesterdays weather was an absolute stinker! so getting these decadent chocolate hazelnut cupcakes- iced in ganache to the venue ASAP was my first priority. I was delighted to get to the rooftop to find the Air conditioning nice and chilly- perfect for the mini cupcakes!These cakes were being eyed off by the band and the venue workers!
The cake was eventually brightened up with some fresh blooms.

Next on the run was this chocolate christening creation! Held at the Siana bar in the Riparian plaza- what a stunning venue!

After more than 10 minutes wandering underground and trying various lifts in the Riparian plaza and Riverside center- we found the venue- and it is fabulous! I am so going back there!

Next on the list was over to the Sebel Citigate- for a grand function with over 250 guests!
This three tier classic design complete with fresh blooms to match the bridal bouquets.

The "tri dot" detail made this cake so pretty!

The last cake of the day was a big one indeed! I knew this cake would take time to put together- so I did it last. You can read about how it came together in the previous blog post.

The reception was held at Customs house. The Long room just oozes elegance- and every time I am there I am in awe of the gorgeous set up.
The lilies for this cake were so large I had to re work the design to incorporate them- as they just didn't fit in between the tiers. In the end a gorgeous cake though- if I do say so myself!

Last but not least is a cake I made for a lady who works with my mum.
The brief was- Tangerine and Yellow- Mad hatter and Shoes. My mum made about a dozen pairs of mini shoes- which were added later- they were at her house- and I sent the cake over to her to deliver.

So this is what I came up with. Bright and fun! White raspberry for the top and the base cake was Orange poppy seed with a Cointreau butter cream!!!!!!!!!! YUM!

This week most of the cakes I baked were White chocolate and Raspberry- a clear client favourite for sure!

Well I am off now to Dayboro- the second last cake of the week!
Congratulations to all of my clients- I hope you had a fabulous day!
