Mother’s day cake!

I hope all the Mum’s out there have a wonderful day with their loved ones.

This cute Vintage inspired Ombre Petal Cake was a lot of  fun to make even if I finished at 2am !! 

Ombre is the graduation of color in a garment, like when a fabric is very dark at one end and gradually lightens or in this case a cake!.

It was a layered rich Brazilian chocolate mud cake covered in fondant petals that got lighter in colour as it rose up the cake topped with a handmade fondant shoe.

The recipient refused to cut the cake as they deemed it too pretty and wanted to look at it a while before cutting it up! 😀

Mother’s Day

I hope Everyone enjoyed a Wonderful mothers day, for once I got to spend the day relaxing and having others wait on me, if only that would happen every day LOL

I made my Mother a cake, which she adored and took home with her uncut !!!

“Too pretty to cut !” she exclaimed …… but..but….

Mind you I was already too full from an indulgent lunch to complain with too much enthusiasm  🙂

When we were kids the street was lined with trees covered with beautiful pink cherry blossoms that used to swirl like a snowstorm when the wind picked up, so I chose a vintage cherry blossom design out of sheer nostalgia.

Did I mention I love all things vintage!

The cake was a light moist and chocolatey mudcake…..is Chocolatey a word? Ahh well it is now if it isn’t already !

The mudcake was coated in a good amount of chocolate Ganache, followed by a layer of white fondant which was then decorated with fondant blossoms and royal icing piped branches .   Yum!
