I must say that I was honoured when a lady I used to work with asked if I would make her daughter’s 21st cake. Having recently completed the Wilton fondant course, I showed her the photo of my bow cake and her daughter decided that was what she wanted for her birthday cake. She wanted the cake to have a lavender bow and hearts on it. So, that is what I did.
Once again the cake is a chocolate cake – a beautiful moist chocolate cake. I covered it in a thin layer of ganache before covering it in the fondant. I am really pleased with how the heart look in the two different shades of purple. With practice I think my fondant covering skills will become better, but I do think I have done a reasonable job of doing the hearts etc. This weekend I am going to decorate my Christmas cake. I am seriously considering cutting the cake into 4 mini cakes to give as gifts and individually decorating each one. That will be fun, but time consuming.
