My Top 3 cakes of 2014

So uh… happy new year?

I can’t believe how fast the year was gone. I intended to blog more, but seems this is going to be an annual occurrence!

But I’m still baking when I can, and for special occasions.

First up, and I still can’t believe I did that was this:

YingWedCake2 Yup, it was a humungous cake… for Sugamama’s garden wedding. It was a chocolate cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream icing, decorated with some of the flowers that were for displays at the wedding table hahaha!

YingWedCakeHere’s the piece on the final display. Sugamama’s husband just took up a chainsaw and cut a piece of log to go with the rustic back garden wedding look!

Thanks to a bunch of people who lent a help in making this cake in less than 24 hours (yeah last minute decision to make a wedding cake), especially Serena who stayed up till 3am with me to make this cake. I’d say a pretty crazy but good job given that we didn’t have much tools to use and we started at about 4 pm eve of the wedding.

The wedding was awesome. On a lovely Canada summer’s day… but bad for the cake as it started to melt a little by the time it was served hehe.

Second cake I loved was this birthday cake I made for Papa Salvatore:
PaCakeA red wine chocolate cake with mascarpone cream and greek yoghurt icing, topped with sour cherries… almost a (boozy) take of a black forest, someone said.

I love the taste and I think Papa Salvatore does too.

Third cake that really made my 2014:

ShaCakeA birthday cake for a very close friend. This was my first chocolate and orange (and heck a lot of grand marnier) cake. I used cadbury’s chocolate fingers as part of the deco too and upped the chocolate dose haha! Icing a a lovely orange swiss meringue buttercream.

That’s all for now. Hope 2015 I’ll have more cakes to come. For now, I’m all caked out especially after that 3 tier wedding cake.
