Well it was a roaring success. I tried covering a choc mud with ganache followed by sugarpaste. Although the ganache was very messy to work with, the cake tasted great. The baby in the bath ended up looking a lot like our baby luckily! No one could believe I made it myself. There were a lot of trial cakes to get to the fina though!
Even the hand piped writing didn't turn out too bad. There were many diasters though - the worst was when I dropped the spatula in my beater and broke it, before I had made the cake.
It really looks great!!!!
looks great. I will be making my first 'real' cake next week!! I sure hope my turns out as well as yours! I have read a lot of the cake disaster post and they have me scared. Especially if someone who has been decorating for awhile.
I have hope.
that is really cute! such a nice idea!
That is really cute, the face looks so real
You did a great job
SO cute!!!! Can I ask, though....what is "mud" cake? I've seen you post about it before and was wondering then, too.
I thought mud cake was a world wide phenominon - obviously not! It is a really thick heavy cake, usually chocolate, sometimes caramel or vanilla. It is very rich and quite 'wet'.
Do they have mud cake in the US? The recipe I have is from an english book.
Well done Occi, turned out great, was it you that had ?s about marzipan, if so how did you go.
Very nice cake!
yes that was me with marzipan questions. I used it on the trial cake but the tast wasnt very popular. I used ganache as a base coat instead. Although it was messy and hard to work with it tasted great!
i am not a fan of marzipan either.
I think it looks adorable
This is really cute!!
That cake is adorable!
You did a great job!!!
