Present Birthday Cake

Here is my fondant version of Richard Festen's Gift Wrap Striped cake.
Working with modelling chocolate requires a really cool room and with Sydney's humid climate in a non-airconditioned house, I will just end up with messy melted chocolate.
Instead I used a patterned mat to created the striped look and folded the fondant like a gift wrap and used bright red fondant to create the ribbon and bow.

I love this and it is so simpe yet elegant. 

This cake was actually for my nephew. I showed him the cake I made from Richard Festen's course and he loved it but he requested red and white to represent the colours of his favourite rugby league team.

Andre's Christening

I created this beautiful cupcake tower for my nephew's christening on the weekend. 
It was very much inspired by Richard Festen's Gift Wrap striped cake. I attended his course while he was here in Australia last month and since then I have been creating stripes and bows galore!!! I Love them!~

Cake is chocolate mud cake with chocolate ganache and covered in fondant stripes.

Cupcakes are vanilla chiffon cupcakes with marshmallow icing.

I also created chocolate cupcakes covered in fondant as I have some left over ganache that I didnt want to waste. So this was for Andre's mother who was celebrating her birthday that same day.

You guessed it!...more bows!!
