The Spanish Themed Birthday Cake

So I’m not one to promote a fondant covered cake, probably because I actually don’t like eating fondant myself. But if a customer asks for a cake covered in fondant, I am happy to accommodate 🙂

Introducing my very first cake covered in fondant! Now it was probably a risk offering a fondant covered cake when I had never actually done one before, but I felt fairly confident after using fondant a lot for accents that I would be able to do it and I’m pretty chuffed with the way it turned out.

The cake itself is a 6″ (15cm) 2-layer milk chocolate mudcake, filled with white chocolate frosting, and coated with milk chocolate frosting. I had an edible image outsourced for the Spanish flag emblem and it turned out great!

One thing I have learnt from this experience, however, is that if you are going to layer a lighter colour (yellow) over a darker colour (red), you should use a thicker rolled lighter-coloured fondant to ensure the darker colour doesn’t affect it.

Happy birthday, Benzo!
