It's been a while since the last post. And yes we're still here. This was our latest project, a gold and red themed hantaran(wedding) cake. The cake was red velvet filled and crumb-coated with cream cheese frosting. I don't exactly know how to describe the taste. So, for those who does not know what a red velvet cake is, here is the wiki definition. A great recipe from marthastewart.com is also available here. The cake was covered with fondant and decorated with fondant ribbon. This is actually our first try to cover a whole cake with fondant. Before this we only did cupcakes. Anyway, it's an OK job. We then, decorate the cake with small gold dragees or gold sugar beads. It's a very hard job when you have to punch a hole and place the dragees one by one and using no template, we tried our best to arrange them as neat as possible. Maybe the result would be better if we only need to piped the dots using royal icing, but then the dots wouldn't look as golden as in the picture.
We then arranged fresh roses on top of the cake. The original idea was to use gumpaste roses, but since the gumpaste roses weren't red enough, hence the fresh roses took place. So there you are, our first wholly fondant covered cake. If you don't look too closely it'll look beautiful, elegant and perfect. So if you're still searching for someone to make a pretty custom cake, look no further. Email us at email@example.com and we'll be glad to design and make your cake.
