Wedding Anniversary Cake: February 2008

This cake was made for one of our friend's from Indian Army, currently posted in Francistown, who celebrated their 13th marriage anniversary on 22 February 2008. Despite very busy schedule at office, i had promised myself that, like last year, i will make the cake for them, this year too ! A promise is a promise, it has trust and faith and moment of truth, whether to others or oneself. Well, i had a night and so spent late hours to complete the cake. My heart leaped with joy, when out of affection they said that this cake was perfect for the occassion and to cherish the memories, the moment was captured in the camera - our friends, the cake and me ! I could feel the pure joy, like the reverbrations of pure innocent creativity.
The cake was vanilla sponge cake with three layers of strawberry and cream fillings. I used natural flowers this time to decorate the cake with royal icing decorations and frilled border.

Two-Tier Birthday Cake: Chocolate Ganache Marble Cake with Cigarellos - February 2008

This two-tier chocolate ganache marble cake was made for a very good doctor friend from Indian Air Force, who is in Francistown. This birthday, we all wished for a fairy in his life, as he is still a bachelor and we could not think of a better theme of combining his birth with a wish for a lovely girl in his life. He was happy with our warm gesture and we captured the moment in a camera of him blowing the candle and making a wish. The party was organised in a Indian Restaurant with the perfect ambience among severals friends.
The rich moist chocolate cake had the flavour of coffee mocha and cinnamon. It was just chocolate and chocolate and nothing else!
With love in the air and Valentine's Day around the corner, I made this cake with lots of hearts, chocolate flower embellishment and roses for our sweet friend to be struck by a Cupid's arrow !
And I found it worth for carrying a wish , to go as a submission for Pooja's theme for Valentine Day

Three-tier Wedding Cake - Pink & Gold Theme: January 2008

Hi friends, I was working on this wedding cake for almost ten days. This was made for a lovely young Sri Lankan couple, who recently got married and are on their way to Australia. The theme of the cake was pink with gold trimmings. I made the scrolls and hand painted them with gold. The arum lilies, roses and blossom flowers were made with hue of pink and gold to match the ambience. The wine glass was painted gold to hold the top tier of the cake. I made the date cakes for the second and top layer and the bottom layer is a madeira cake. It really makes one feel so happy to see smiles on the faces and take one step further as a sugarpaste artist in search of excellence ! In the world of infinity, as a learner, one keeps building the foundation slowly, and your words and comments (i value them) helps me in this journey to move on.
