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!
Last cake of the week and then I get a week off of relaxation before the double cake + 50 red velvet cupcakes order I need to do the week after. That will be my next post, of course. It`s going to get picked up at the same day, lol. I will be staying up REAAAL late LOL
But anyways, back to the cake. So this was a cake order for a friend of a friend of mine. My friend’s friend asked her if there was anyone she knew who can do cakes, and my friend suggested me which was great, THANKS JENG! :) It’s funny because her friend told me that they were discussing this during class and was looking through my pictures and talking to me.
So Jeng’s friend told me that she wanted to give a cake to her boyfriend as their 1 year anniversary AND his birthday. She wanted a sculpted car cake, a Mercedes Benz SLR but I obviously I didn’t do a very good job, lol.
This cake was only for two servings, so the smallest cake pan I had was a 6” and that’s why the cake looks so small and doesn’t look like a mercedes benz LOL! It is a chocolate cake and the filling is chocolate mousse, strawberries and drizzled with ganache (delicious!) It wasn’t too hard to make considering it was a small cake but I did have troubles with a few things. Especially the royal icing, I think it was a bit runny because the writings kept sticking together and it turned ugly.
Not much to say about this car, I wasn’t 100% happy with it because it didn’t look good… it looks okay but I could do so much better. BUT Jeng’s friend liked it so that all that matters :)
