One Of Three Cakes For This Weekend

customer just said she wanted butterflies and bright cheery colors, so this is what I came up with. It is two, twolayer 6 inch chocolate cakes filled with white chocolate BC covered in vanilla BC then covered in 1/2 white chocolate candy clay 1/2 fondant mixture. The sunshine is a sugar mold base with white chocolate rays connected with royal icing. Clouds are royal icing as well. This was a FUN cake.

I absolutely Love this cake! How did you do the pattern on the butterflies? I need to do those next month duplicating little girls room decor?

carrielynnfields Says... 9 years ago

I hand painted them, both sides. I used a cookie cutter for the wings. Hope that helps. You can also use non-toxic markers from what I understand just make sure that you let the customer know they are "for decoration only"

Awesome cake!!!!!

jouj Says... 8 years ago

Wow, beautiful cake! How big was it? Do you mind telling me for how much you sold it? I'm having a hard time pricing my cakes. Thanks.

carrielynnfields Says... 8 years ago

Thanks :) It was a column 6 inch cake (4 6 inch cakes stacked) I think I charged 95 for it? Hard to remember. I generally start with a price range of 2.75-3.50 per serving and up it with the more decorations there are and the more work involved, carving, sculpting etc...hope that helps

jouj Says... 8 years ago

Hi again, how big is your serving size? From what I understand, this cake was around 30 servings, right? Thanks again.

carrielynnfields Says... 8 years ago

I actually don't do the cutting, but I think it is around 2x3. It was for a childerens party so the pieces might have been bigger than that. If I remember correct, the order was for only 25 guests??? I think?? Long time ago. Hope this helps. Sorry if it doesn't

jouj Says... 8 years ago

I know that you don't do the cutting, but I asked because you mentioned putting the price according to the servings. By the way, I usually cut the pieces smaller when it's for children, because they tend to eat a bite and throw the rest.

kicky Says... 8 years ago

Wow what a fantastic cake, i bet the mum loved it. I love it when the parents just give you a brief decription of what they want we can let out imaginations run wild. How did you make the clouds. Adding it to my favs now.

carrielynnfields Says... 8 years ago

Thanks :) The clouds are just RI. This is one of my favs too.

GI Says... 8 years ago

;-D How did you do 1/2 WC Candy Clay & 1/2 Fondant? This is awesome. My kids would be fighting over who got what off the cake!

htherjo Says... 8 years ago

Amazing! Beautiful! I have decorator's envy! :D Absolutely beautiful work!!

lynda-bob Says... 8 years ago

Very cute; I love the heighth of the small cake! It looks like a cartoon fantasy :D

jenntatum Says... 8 years ago

wow! that is so cute! I love it! You did a gret job!

annethered Says... 8 years ago

FAB cake! Was it difficult to getthe fondant so smooth over such a tall and narrow stack? I tend to end up with pleats near the base? :-( Also sugar mould for the sun? Do you mean coloured sugar crystals mixed with something then set? What a brilliant idea - because it sparkles!! :D

carrielynnfields Says... 8 years ago

I did have a very difficult time...why do you think there are so many flowers and stuff? LOL I was covering the tears and folds. It is horrible to admit but beautiful things came come from ugly mistakes. And yes, the sugar mold is just colored sugar and a little teeny bit of water (to make it like sand castle consistency) then pressed into desired mold and allowed to sit overnight. Thanks for the compliments!

annethered Says... 7 years ago

I SO know what you mean. Sometimes the best ideas spring from having to sort out what goes wrong :-) The finished result is fabulous though. I am going to try to emulate it. My daughter is tryingto raise some money for theor prom next year and she wants me to produce a cake for them to raffle. If it turns out anything like yours I'll be REALLY happy!

campinsp Says... 7 years ago

Its fun to look at also. Nice cake.

umabdurrahman Says... 7 years ago

I love this cake! it is wonderful! i would like to make a similar sun i tried once but the sun rays wouldn't stand up up, maybe it was too big, anyhow i ended up cracking it in half and attaching them, waiting for it to dry and then fix the two halfs together. is there an easier way? any help is welcome. :roll:

umabdurrahman Says... 7 years ago

sorry i meant the rays wouldn't stand upright, so i cracked the sun in half and attached the rays (flat on the table) then i fixed the two halves of the sun together again.

ANicole Says... 7 years ago
