Dawn’s Birthday Cake: The Pink Forest Cake

There are some times I just want to slap myself when people ask me questions and I stutter or reply with my tongue twisted. Sigh.. This time round I was probably star-struck. And there is a difference between being shy and rude. I’m just really shy…

I’ve been extremely blessed to have met Cheryl, who created this cake with me for her boss, Dawn as a surprise! Cake is always a good surprise. I love it when people have their full trust in me to create something for them. It doesn’t matter who it is, but I will always give my 110%, no less. Cheryl and her friend searched through my library of cakes and threw some pictures of my rose and raspberry, raspberry chocolate, rose and pistachio cake and I figured things out from there.

Could see the rough idea and went ahead with the rose, raspberry and pistachio body since we chose that flavour. The dripping green liquid is pistachio ganache made with handmade pistachio paste. And once again, melding my three loves ❤

I’m so glad that I bought that bunch of forest plants and used it to make a bunting! My all-time favourite so far. Enough words, just pictures.

Marie & Jonathan’s Wedding Cake

 3 of my favourite things (if the rustic style can be considered as a “thing”) are probably, Rusticity, Roses and Raspberries. I especially adore dried roses and I absolutely would not know a world without them now.

This cake was created with Marie, the lovely bride. They had a ceramic cake topper which was assembled on-site which is why the top was left empty (although I kind of like it this way).

The cake layers are flavoured with earl grey tea and lemon and the cream is mildly scented with lavender. Too much lavender renders its flavour to be soapy. I love how the upward strokes of the cream lends it a really rustic look.

Spiced Apple & Speculoos Cake

Been experimenting with a spiced apple and speculoos cake this week. Enjoying every last bit of freedom I have until a new chapter begins! Next time though, I will DEFINITELY get crunchy speculoos and sneak in some apple pie filling. Can almost imagine its taste in my mouth now! Ah… the life of someone who’s constantly thinking of food…
