tips & tricks…..

It’s inevitable….

Every time I find myself elbow deep in buttercream, & fighting with air pockets & a level cake under my fondant…. I’m constantly swearing like a drunken sailor under my breath. My dog usually has this bewildered expression on his face as he looks at me like I’ve just escaped from the loony bin. Thank god he can’t actually speak, he’d tell everyone just how crazy I actually am.

….He may even be tempted to tell people about how when I roll out fondant, I can usually be found on top of my dinning table, marble rolling pin in hand, using the vast majority of my body weight to push that miraculous fondant out to the desired width it needs to be.

Yea… he has some stories.

Of course, now that I have two cakes under my belt for this month, now would be when I find this wonderful little video….

All I can say is, I have another wedding cake coming up for the end of the month. I’ve been given a free pass to decorate it however I please & I can assure you… I’m going with the tackiest colour combination possible & I fully intend to make it work!

As for the last two cakes? Well, since I sent them in pieces to an island & left final assembly up to my wonderful friends over at Chilli Catering, I’m still waiting to hear back on whether or not the photographers were able to take a photo. All I have is instagram pictures taken at about 05:00am, & they aren’t really worth the pixel space. I’ll show them to you any way…

Both cakes look incredibly similar (in my defence… the wedding parties chose the flowers & colour combinations so there wasn’t much I could do about that).

Happy summer everyone!
