Mission “Cake” – fulfilled!


Yesterday was my son’s first birthday and I’ve been planning on having a nice colorful cake. It turned out that ordering a cake like that was quite pricy in Paris, so I’ve decided I will learn to make it myself. What a self-confidence, right? Fortunately, the birthday wave started about one month ago and I had the oportunity to make several tries which were also quite successful (well, for a beginner of course).

Here’s the first cake I made for a friend…Cake 1

It was quite tasty actually, but obviously the visualisation wasn’t its strength🙂 The second one was better outside than inside…

But finally, the most important one turned well – outside and inside!🙂

Here are some photos of the process:

Once I have the cake baked and the different “floors” stuck together, I use butter cream to spread around so that the covering sticks better on the top.

I buy fondant which comes in different quantities and colors, then roll it out to have the desired shape. DSCN1437 DSCN1438 DSCN1439 DSCN1442

This is the glucose syrup I use to glue the small details to the cake

  1. When I saw the photos from his bday party, the first thing I noticed was that the cake and how fantastic it looked. Now that I know that you made it I am even more impressed. Excellent job!

    • Thank you, J!🙂 I am also very glad it worked out. Now at least I can make cakes on certain occasions. Actually it is not as hard as it seems…
