Final Valley Statues – Hashirama and Madara.

Final Valley cake was a cake we were happy to design to the requirements of our customers.

Like this cake with Statues of Hashirama Senju and Madara Uchiha.

I believe these characters are from The Naruto (Japaneseナルトmanga  anime series. (If I’m wrong please let me know in the comments section below).

Working from Pictures

The customer provided some pictures as guidance and wanted to include some small character figures as well.

Pictures that were provided for Guidance.

        

We made the cake similar to picture 3 because this would give us space to place on the small figures provided by the customer.

The cake was made from layers of sponge, sandwiched with Jam & Buttercream then covered with Sugar Paste.

The two Statues for this Final Valley cake were modelled from Sugar Paste, To get the colour & texture we airbrushed the cake with food colouring.

The waterfall was added using Royal Icing, and the grass was Sugar Paste. Finally, we added the small figures.

Car Cake – Thanks for the Mention

3D Car !! A couple of weeks ago a photo of one of our customers celebrating his 80th birthday appeared in our local paper, the photo showed Graham with is Birthday Cake a 3D 1936 Rolls Royce along with a little information about the car ( click on Photo to read the Story). The cake was ordered by his family as a surprise for him.

 

 

We layered Vanilla sponge sheets together with jam and buttercream, then carved the car shape by eye.

Normally we work from proper drawings or blueprints when we carve the car shape, but with this one we only had pictures that his family sent us (see below).

Wedding TV

Wedding TV

Wedding TV, Just over six years ago we took part in the Great Cake Bake programme, on the Wedding TV Channel.

Along with two other top cake designers, we battled it out to win the hearts of a couple by creating an extravagant unique cake especially for their Elegant Crystals themed big day.

We had five days of filming at our shop and one day at the Wedding Venue. If you didn’t see the programme  (or want to see it again ) you can watch the video below and see what happened !!

Bubble Gum and Super Heroes

Flavours What would you choose for a wedding cake ?. A few weeks ago we made a 4 Tier Wedding cake for one of our customers and they chose to have different flavours for each tier.

The bottom tier was Chocolate orange sponge with vanilla buttercream.

we make our Chocolate orange sponge using fresh orange zest to give a nice light fresh orange flavour ( we don’t use orange flavourings).

The second tier was Hazelnut sponge layered with Nutella and Nutella buttercream.

The third tier was a Peanut Butter sponge layered with Peanut Butter Buttercream

bubble gumNow for the Bubble Gum!, the flavour they requested for the top tier was something we had not made before.

This was Bubble Gum flavoured sponge with bubble gum flavoured buttercream.

The sponge was coloured pale pink & the buttercream a pale blue colour and both were flavoured with natural bubble gum flavouring.

6083

All the tiers were covered with a thin layer of marzipan (this we think gives a better finish to the cake) we then covered this with white sugar paste.

The Brides choice of design was that the bottom two tiers & top tier had silver diamante banding around them and piped royal icing patterns, the second tier down had silver diamante banding and a sugar paste ribbon and bow, in the centre of the bow was a diamante brooch. (Click on Pictures for Larger Images)

6084The back of the cake was designed by the Groom.

Who wanted a Super Heroes theme.

The handmade model of the Bride and Groom had the Groom wearing an open jacket revealing the Superman logo on his chest. 

We delivered the cake to their venue, The Upper House Hotel, Barlaston. A lovely venue which is set in 10 acres of woodlands and beautifully landscaped gardens.

Delivery and setting up of wedding Cakes in the Stoke-on-Trent area is included in the cost of the cake (additional charge may apply outside of Stoke-on-Trent).

Helping at Cake International

This week myself and Elysha made a display wedding Cake for Sugar Paste Direct, to use on their stand at the Cake International Show. This was to show the quality of their sugar paste.

My cake decorating assistant Elysha has also helped them on their stand demonstrating her talents working with their sugar paste.

The Wedding Cake is a 4 tier white cake with double silver diamante banding around the bottom of each tier and Pearl lustred swags & bows finished with glittered burgundy roses.

We use Sugar Paste Directs sugar paste because our customers like the taste, and we get a nice smooth finish on our cakes when we cover them with it.

Because the icing sugar that Sugar Paste Direct use is specifically milled to an extra fine eleven microns to give a satin smooth finish.

With the addition of edible gum (Tylo Powder) we can make models and hand made flowers with it.

We have used Sugar Paste Directs sugar paste since it first came on the market, they are a local family run company based in  Newcastle Under Lyme.
