“wedgewood blue…” was the colour the bride wanted for her croquembouche. I tried my best to match the exact shade of blue and I think it got pretty close. It’s not always easy to achieve a particular colour in pastry work since food colours are limited and sometimes the base is not white.
I like to work with pastel shades. Not only is the result elegant and pretty, it also uses less food colour. I get requests for strong colours occasionally. Like a black fondant cake or a red one. If you ever attend a party with a cake of such strong colours, I suggest you skip eating the fondant covering. The amount of food colouring that goes in there, hmm…
A variation of the popular Petite Bow Cake, this one is in a gorgeous blue topped with a pom pom bow. The sides of the cake has a fan like pattern with a sugared surface for an added sparkle effect. Simple and very pretty! I imagine this looking good for a wedding luncheon too.
I had accompanied a good friend to her bridal fitting and had the chance to talk to her gown designer who happened to be looking for a wedding cake. She wanted a grand looking cake with flowers. So I designed a 5 tier fondant cake with fresh flowers and crystals to match her gown. Topped with a custom crystalised initials of the bride and groom, I think this should be grand enough and won’t be dwarfed by the opulent stage decor.
This cake unleashed the florist in me and I enjoyed putting up the flowers. The crystals were a pain though. They had to be individually stuck onto the ribbon and there is A LOT of crystals, not to mention the crystal studded intials as a cake topper.
But I’m sure this looks better than most hotels’ fake wedding cake:)
A Singaporean bride residing in France requested for the traditional croquembouche as her wedding cake. I was excited about this project as it would be displayed at a prominent hotel and she wanted an autumny gold, orange feel to it. Lots of gold pom pom ribbons, icing maple leaves and chocolate oak leaves should do the trick!
The result is stunning and I’m so happy that the guests enjoyed the profiteroles and was so kind to write me a thank you note:)
A beautiful bride and her groom asked me to make a luggage themed cake for them. Being from different countries, they must have liked traveling or met each other on their travels? It was such a joy making this cake – the couple was very very polite and they had a great theme!
A wedding cake can be a great gift – looks great on the table and serves as a lovely dessert. I love wedding cakes with fresh flowers. They are amazingly elegant and timeless.
This wedding cake was commissioned as a gift and at that time I was only given a pink theme to work with. Surprisingly, it turned out that the flowers on the cake matched those of the bridesmaids:) The cake has a first tier with lychee martini sponge cake and the second tier of lemon sponge cake. It has a fresh cream covering which taste better than fondant but is only suitable for air conditioned environment or for a short period outdoors.
