Well, last year I made a cake for my son's school Fall fest and they did a raffle for it and the PTO asked me this year to do one more with the same purpose. I had all these grand plans what I am going to make and 2 days before the event I dislocated my shoulder.
So, I had to rethink the idea and do the best that I can in this situation. It's not what I initially have planned, but I think it came out pretty well.
What do you think?
1. This of course is the sketch that I made in a hurry the day I started the cake ( believe it or not, until that moment I still didn't know what I'm going to do with it).
2. The cake was with 4 vanilla and 4 chocolate layers, soaked with raspberry syrup, with chocolate ganache and crushed walnuts. I frosted it on top with strawberry frosting ( under the fondant)
3. I wanted to create blending effect with the food coloring, so although I don't have airbrush I think it came out well. I made it with a little sponge.
4.And here is the finished cake, different views:
I hope you enjoyed this "mixed media" cake ( cake decorating, fondant sculpture, painting and quilling)!
