Cake #8 (Final): Wedding Cake

Cake #8 (Final): Wedding Cake

Again, this one taken with a cell phone (too busy rescuing a neighbor's loose dog to have time to find the camera), taken through the display glass and priced, for class, at $6 slice. We had seven days to select, plan, cost out, make, and decorate a cake from a photograph with some basic restrictions. This is a chocolate devil's food cake with orange chocolate ganache completely covered in white fondant with gumpaste flowers and band, with royal icing piping, to serve 75 guests.

Chef Instructor gave me an almost-perfect score (my fondant was a little dry and dusty along the base, and pulled a little thin when I was covering the middle and bottom layers, but I was only docked five points out of a possible 500). I'm actually proud of my final product, although I can go through and point out absolutely everything wrong with it (including too many flowers on the bottom layer). I'm extremely appreciative of Jovana, Michelle and Cyrus for being generous with their table space, my rambling annoyances, and my messing up their stuff and interrupting their work flow. They are fabulous classmates.

This is my third wedding cake ever, and the first not meant to be eaten (even though it was tasty. We had to present a tasting sample for Chef Instructor as part of the grade. And we learned in the restaurant block that taste is an integral part of presentation. Duh). I really like the "modern" design of cakes - flavor over all, with simple, elegant designs. This was for a "winter" wedding, and as a friend said, it looks like wedgewood china (or porcelain, as another friend said). I have wedgewood. I like wedgewood. It's all good.

Next, the "Chocolate Block" and sugar sculpturing. Yay! And that's it. Six more weeks of Patisserie and Baking classes at TCA and then no more daily trips up 183 to the Domain to see the motley crew of pirate bakers. Wow. Sadster.

(and I have to seriously start searching for an externship. Know anyone hiring?)

Ruby Wedding Anniversary Cake .... with a South African influence !

Ruby Wedding Anniversary Cake .... with a South African influence !

This cake was for the Ruby Wedding Anniversary celebrations for friends of ours who we have known for well over thirty years !
The wife is South African and they married in Johannesburg, hence the sugar proteas on top of the cake.
The big protea was made for Elizabeth's birthday cake back in January, and she kept it so it could be put on top of their anniversary cake as well. I added some more proteaceae to it this time, namely the Blushing Bride flowers ( Serruria florida ).

They had a lunch party yesterday for some 60 close friends and family, some of whom flew in from South Africa, at a beautiful country hotel ..... the sun shone, the Pimms flowed, the meal was delicious and the company delightful. All in all, we had the most wonderful day !

A 10" madeira cake filled with lemon buttercream and covered in marzipan and fondant.
All flowers made in flower(gum)paste.
The embossed lace was dusted with the palest pink shimmer and I was asked that the decorations be pink, not ruby.
Elizabeth made a fruit cutting cake to go with this, so we had plenty of cake !

{ I went to the Apple Store today with my faulty MacBook and they replaced it with a brand new one on the spot without me having to say a thing ! They customised it exactly like my old one (more RAM, bigger hard drive), set it all up for me and installed iWork as a gift to make up for the inconvenience and expense I had incurred ...... now that's service .... thank you Apple !!! }

Now to catch up with what I've missed .....
