I got asked to make a cake for a 60th and was asked to make a fondant -covered cake which I’ve not done in years (because I hate it). Challenge was accepted though.
I’m not overly imaginative for cake design, so asked if they had anything in mind for inspiration. This is what I was sent…
I think the result went quite well. I couldn’t be bothered to make a palm tree, but may not have had the room anyways.
I last made a beach themed cake 12 years ago… I think it’s safe to say I’ve improved little:
The inside of the cake (not pictured) was:
- vanilla sponge
- strawberry jam
- Vanilla buttercream
Everything on top was made from fondant and just shaped / coloured accordingly.
