A Fairy and A Bright Red Hat!

This weekend I had two cakes to complete. The first one was for Charlotte who was turning 6. She was having a fairy party, so chose a mauve version of the fairy cake.

The cake was deep, dark chocolate cake filled with milk chocolate ganache and fondant covering. I handmade the fairy, butterflies and flowers from modelling paste.

Charlotte loved her cake and had a fabulous party!

My sister is celebrating her birthday this week and we had her birthday cake yesterday, as weekdays are crazy busy for us all with school and after school activities. She loves any type of cake, so left it up to me to choose the flavour and decoration.

The cake turned out to be a bright red hat! Not what I originally planned, but it just evolved as I went along, luckily it was for family :)

The cake was dark chocolate peppermint mudcake with dark chocolate peppermint ganache filling and fondant covering. The rose was hand made from modelling paste. Wow, it was a very rich cake, but delicious. It was the first time I have flavoured the ganache too, and I will certainly be doing it again.

This week my little blog will be turning 1! I can't believe one year has passed since I took the plunge into the blog world. I am so pleased I did, I really enjoy writing and showing my cakes on here. I have met some wonderful people through blogging. Thankyou to my followers x

Enjoy your week.
