My first 2-tier fondant cake


It time to cut the cake

Tasting time

Pink colour tends to fade, so it best colour it darker
We are quencing up to be place on the cupcakes
Finally, my dear sis pm me the pics. My sis V requested a pink and white theme with lots of flower surrounding the cake. The flavour of the cake must be chocolate and lots of chocolate without butter cream. Initially, her choice of cake was banana chocolate cake. But the cake was too moist to hold the weight, so i suggest a hazelnut chocolate fudge cake with ganache. Phew!

 During the whole cake making process, i suffer panic attack and went brain dead. The old Chinese saying " Haven't learn how to walk properly, already dreaming of running". Luckily, my youngest sis came to my recuse. She helped me look after the kids, wash the utensil and even help me cut the fondant. During, the whole cake making process. It was very tough for me, i was so afraid that i will ruin my dear sis V 21st birthday cake expectation. I have to handle multi-task too. But i was really very happy, the feedback was excellent. Everyone said it was delicious bursting with lots of chocolate, but was not overdose. I told my sis V that all chocolate will get overdose and the cake itself looks like a wedding cake. She the bride, but no groom how? Overall, I'm glad that i took up the challenge. Never dream i can make such cake.

The cake base was "10 inch" and the top was "8 inch". Each hazelnut chocolate fudge cake was slice into 3 layer using ganache as filling and i used Kahlua/rum syrup to moist the cake. The cake was covered and decorated using MMF only. Did not weight the cake, but my younger sis and i suffer from muscle cramp for almost 3 days haa... Next, i am planning a small cake for myself too.

Thanks Ann. The big to small flower was the scary part, a roughly estimation of 180 over flowers. Omg! too much chocolate and flower over dose.
