This has been a crazy week for me. For some strange reason everyone decided to visit/celebrate and organise events all this week.
But I have been looking forward to this cake since the lovely Simonne contacted me earlier this month. She was planning to have a circus themed party for her twins but admitted that all her son really wanted was a rocket ship cake. So guess what he got?
A circus themed rocket ship :) I love cake designs like this, they are so original and although may seem a little strange to outsiders, means a lot to the client receiving it. As I rang the doorbell this morning the cutest thing happened... I could hear from all the way inside the house, an excited little voice, 'Mum, my rocket cake is here!'. Unfortunately I didn't get to meet him but I'm sure he had a fun filled day.
This week I also hosted a private lesson for my cousin and her sweet friend Dawn who wanted to make a cake for her goddaughter's birthday. She was inspired by my fairy cake and changed the design to suit the garden theme that her goddaughter was having. I think she did amazingly! Looking at the pictures below, no one would have guessed that she had never ganached a cake or worked with fondant before. I'm sure everyone at the party is going to be blown away when she walks in with this cake.
Making sure everything is straight.
Adding the final touches...
