But the catch was it has to be a castle, an under the sea castle called Neptune's Castle. I broke into cold sweat as I was only given one week's notice. I loved the challenge but worry if I did a lousy job I would disappoint the gals. SOS was sent out: Greg with his clay molding skills and Aunty Terry for ideas on buttercream and fondant.
This was the end product:Two 10" American chocolate cake and layers of chocolate ganache staked on top of one another, followed by one 6"American Chocolate cake and finally two ice cream cones to top off. Cakes were creamed and the sea creatures, plants and features of the castle were shaped separately and stick onto the cake with buttercream.
Greg was really good with the shaping. His artistic sense came in really handy. So the cake is actually a joint effort by Aunty Nee and Uncle Greg to be exact. The gals yelped when they set eyes on the cake. Think they will remember their cake for a long time to come.
Everyone deserve to have their favourite cake for their birthdays. That is why i love baking. Cakes are delights. They put smiles on faces. They put shines in eyes. They give fond and happy memories. And I'm glad the gals were happy with their cake.
