I recently recieved a cake order from a repeat client .The cake is for her bestfriend in the world and she gave me 3 things to go on
1.Her bestfriends nickname is Hershey
2.She loves the number 7
3. She loves the color blue
She suggested a huge hershey bar cake
But that is where her ideas ended
Does anyone out there have any ideas for this cake!!!
I would appreciate it
for cakes like this i prefer to make say a two tier, 8 and 6 or 8 and 10 and work with the ideas.
so, i would make a whimsy style polka dot/stripe cake in shades of blue and white- maybe a little pink and then make a hersey bar topper and stick a big curly number 7 on the side and loads of icing "streamers" and maybe a load of tiny hersey kisses, etc.
thats what i would do, although i have a fear of carving shaped cakes so maybe im just chicken!!
I'm thinking a cake iced in blue (or blue fondant) with a 3D hershey bar on top made of fondant or gumpaste. I don't know about the "7" unless you did seven of something for a border??
If her name is Hershey, why not a Hershey's kiss on top. Just popped into my mind that it might be cuter than the actual bar.
Okay... I love this one. I wish I were doing one. Here's another thought. Use the blue fondant idea, with 3d silver Hershey kisses as the border or instead of polka dots, use the kisses shape. Sorry, I couldn't stand not giving one more thought. I'll stop now.
What if you did seven hershey kiss shaped cakes - the size of each would be your choice, maybe graduated? Wrapped in blue foil, like a kiss.
Or you could do the 'kiss' cakes covered in chocolate ganache on top of a cake covered in blue fondant.
Good luck and have fun!!
A BIGGGG THANKYOU TO EVERYONE !! I LOOOOVED A LOT OF THE IDEAS
Be sure you let us know how it goes. And don't forget the pictures!!
OK I have an update we have decided to do a big # 7 covered in blue fondant with a hershey bar hanging of the side of the seven and matching cupcakes with hershey kisses on top
Not particularly what I had in mind but the client has her own agenda
SO now the new issue is she wants the cake to be chocolate and filled with cream
My first response was HUH..but now Im wondering how do I do that I have never filled a cake before especially a number 7
For a cake like that I find it is easier to put a layer of say 9x13 leveled even.(depending on how big you need the 7), then put the filling on, then another layer of leveled 9x13. Put it in the freezer for about 20 min. or so, then use a tall sharp knife to cut out the seven that way you will have nice sharp corners(use a cardboard templete if you are nervous about eyeballing it). Post pics when you are done.
Her nickname Hershey has seven letters-ask her friend to come up with an acrostic for it. Or seven thins we love about you...
