It’s turning out to be quite a popular design as I actually have quite a few requests for these cakes coming up in the next few months J
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.
Banana Split cake for a 31st birthday. It’s a 10” cake, carved to resemble a serving dish – the cake flavor is Neopolitan (alternate layers of chocolate and vanilla cakes w/strawberry buttercream) , covered in chocolate ganache. White Chocolate Fondant was used to cover and decorate. Ice Cream Scoops are jumbo cupcakes covered in buttercream. Banana and cherries are real. Enjoy!
