Retirement Cake

I definitely feel that this is the most professional-looking cake I’ve made to date .

It’s a retirement cake for my mum’s work-friend and I didn’t have any spec other than that.

There some holes in the cake when I removed the wrapping, but these were easily filled in and smoothed over.

the inside of the cake is vanilla cake layers with strawberry jam and buttercream. The outside coating is a white chocolate ganache, gold leaf and cake hearts. The balls and fans are none edible.

I’ve put the finished cake in one of my new fancy cake display boxes too as I had struggled the other week to get my normal cake boxes. I am tempted to just stock up on these for future as they’re so pretty
