After finishing this cake I felt like it would be easier to win at the casino than make it again.
The major challenge was that it had to be a sfoglia (millefeuille) cake inside and had to be fancy and decorated for a big 50th birthday. So here is how it looked from the outside and according to the family that requested it the inside turned out good too.

This small (8″ round) cake was an opportunity to try lace impression mat on fondant to decorate sides of the cake. White chocolate mousse filling looked and behaved well with AC on, but melted when left in the warm house afterwards. Besides the tough lesson, that white chocolate mousse cake absolutely need refrigeration, I still posted the photo of this cake when it was alive and well.

I wanted to try this idea for a while, to use chocolate shoe as part of shoebox cake. Even though there is a LOT of shoebox cakes pictures on the web with gumpaste shoes, and many of them are true works of art, it always seems sad that nobody would eat gumpaste and it would eventually by thrown away. Working with chocolate mold was a lot more gratifying process, after all Belgian dark chocolate would not be discarded after the cake is cut. The shoe was filled with few praline bonbons mixed with fondant roses. All other decorations are made of fondant.

Thirteenth Birthday Cake

For some reason I don’t get to make many “girly” cakes, and really miss it. But here was a lucky break! Red velvet square cake decorated with few necessities of young lady’s life made an exciting challenge. “Coach” handbag was actually a separate little carrot cake. I got to make “zebra” fondant and printed some elements on edible paper to match birthday invitations. Overall a wonderful opportunity to create something both pretty and sophisticated!
