So I was really excited to make this circus cake (red velvet w/cream cheese buttercream), I took the original design given to me by the client and made it into my own. I was happy with the outcome and posted the pic on my FB page. Within minutes of posting the photo I received a request to make the exact same cake. I try not to make the exact cake twice- especially in one week.
I needed to give this 2nd cake some individuality and it was a bit smaller (100 servings) I changed the tier shapes, added orange into the color scheme and used a different technique on the name to give it some individuality.
Overall I’m happy with how both cakes came out but I really think I like the 2nd one better. I think has to do with the technique used on the name – it just pops more. Just goes to show how simple adjustments can a difference.
There will be lots more to details and some behind the scenes action to come, so stay tuned!
I then mixed white and chocolate fondant together to make the “donut” color (it’s a little darker than I would have liked) and covered the cake.
