I'm Nina Rae, 21 years old and I discovered my love for cake decorating when I enrolled at Bonnie Gordon College of Confectionary Arts.
My cakes doesn't look professional and I still need to learn a lot so please enjoy!
Before I go through this cake, I just want to say that the cake ideas aren’t usually mine, I look at google images and look for a good one that I would enjoy making, then I make them. I found this cake idea from a woman named Anna V and it was the only design I found that I really liked. Of course I changed some bits and pieces here and there so it doesn’t entirely look like hers, lol. Hers looks better obviously!
But anyways, on with the cake! Okay so at first, a schoolmate of mine ordered 100 cupcakes from me for her birthday party, BUT she changed her ordered and instead, she wanted a customized cake & 50 red velvet cupcakes. When she ordered a Tigger cake, I wasn’t too sure of what kind of design I was going to do but thankfully I found a perfect one!
The cake is just a simple chocolate cake, with swiss meringue buttercream and no special filling. I masked it, covered it and put bits of green on the side like Anna’s but I realized she used airbrush and I do have an airbrush machine, I just didn’t have the color. So I took a sponge, ( a clean one, of course) and dabbed a bit of green around the sides which turned out okay. After all that, the first thing I did was Tigger and after finishing it, I’m not going to lie, though I did have troubles making it, it was fun. Everything about this cake was fun to make and I am extremely proud at how it turned out. I showed a picture of it after finishing it to Nyl and she liked it, she said it was cute :)
Another cake will be posted tonight, the 2nd cake I made that’s going to get picked up the same day as this Tigger cake is so look forward to that :)
