Snow White Cake

'Grumpy 'Sugar figure
Hi Everyone...
Here I am again with another cake decorating post. I have been very fortunate to have the same friend order 5 cakes in the last few month so she has been keeping me busy! And has ordered another for November....Yippeee. I am trying to get the business off the ground so it can become full time, so as many orders as I can get is a good thing....I hope she has many
She told me about her daughters 4th Birthday party back in July and told me the date. Over the last few month I had a lot on my mind with my dads health I was sure the cake was needed for late Sept so was not too worried. I contacted my friend to see if she still wanted the cake and she said yes for next week!!!! I only had a week to decorate a two tier sponge cake and make all the decorations OMG PANIC!!!!
'Snow White' hand painted plaque

Snow White was the theme. I knew the little girl loves Grumpy and Dopey and we agreed to have two 3d figures and I would paint snow white in food colour. The figures are all edible, and based on the movie. She even lent me a book of her daughters for inspiration! luckily I managed to complete the cake in time but boy... I missed my usual prep time!!
' Dopey' sugar figure

Here is Dopey.. made from sugar paste. He is edible. Although he is supported with a cocktail stick. Which has to be removed first..

I took the cake to to my friend on the 4th Sept. She had hired a cute little chalet on our local peach promenade, it was small yet contained a kitchen, sink and a small table. I set up the cake and made use of the kitchen to add a few details on the cake. It was a beautiful hot day... I am pleased after such a shaky start the cake all worked out eventually!
Before all the details were added

I hope you enjoyed hearing about my recent cake decorating adventures! lol..
See you again soon
