MadeItMonday: Cake the Fifth

Welcome to #MadeItMonday, where I post something I’ve made in the previous week, and where you can join in and post something you made too! The rules are easy: post a pic somewhere of something you’ve made in the last week (ish; let’s say in the last month as the hard-and-fast) and tag it. Sit back and enjoy scrolling through all the beautiful things we’ve collectively created, and celebrate the fact that humans can be awesome! 🙂

Yes, I’m posting these out of order, because I only just realised that I hadn’t posted Cake 4 from the holidays yet. So why am I not just posting it today? Because I promised you the Star Wars cake this week! 😀 So, this week Star Wars, next week Cake The Fourth 😉

This one’s a gluten-free chocolate cake, filled and covered with raspberry meringue-buttercream, topped with white chocolate ganache, and wrapped with a white chocolate collar that I painted a la Star Wars 🙂 The brief was pretty + light blue + Star Wars, so yeah. This was my eventual interpretation! Wrah.

What have you made this week? (It doesn’t have to be fancy!!) Don’t forget to tag your contribution, or even better, leave a link in the comments!! I love seeing what inspiring things other people have made 🙂 🙂 🙂

MadeItMonday: Star Wars Cake Design

This week we have pre-cake (just for a change, HA). I was commissioned to do a Star Wars cake recently (pics next week ;)) and this was a sketch of one of the early designs. Even though I didn’t end up using it, it was super fun to create! And I’m kind of tempted to allocate a couple of weeks over the Christmas holidays to trying a bunch of new cake decorating techniques, and I might use this as the basis for one of those. Whee!
