I have a cake order due this week for a chocolate cake with ganache. It is for a radio dj that I love. He wants it simple. But this could be a great opportunity for me. So I don't wanna just slap on some frosting and there ya go. How can I do something nice, masculine, and simple?
You could make some chocolate curls, cigars, etc. or piped chocolate decorations to put on the cake.
Everybody loves drizzle cake!!
Does he want the ganache drizzled on the outside or could you use it as the filling and maybe make the cake itself look like a turntable or something else related to his DJing, etc.??? Just an idea.
well his radio name he goes by lunchbox. I was the one who wanted simple. So I decided maybe to take it up a bit and maybe do a cake like an old fashion silver lunch box. Thing is I saw a pic here a while back now I can't find anything.
I typed in lunchbox in the search and this is what I found. Might be able to work with it somehow.
Or...you could make the lunch box out of cake (the old round top style). Stack up rectangle cake and carve the top so it curves. Maybe make a sandwich and a can of pop out of cake, etc. not sure how many servings you are going for.
well i think i am gonna make the round top style. I will make gray fondant, but should I paint it with silver luster dust?
I would at least test it out on a smaller piece of the fondant. I think it would look nicer with the shine to it.
