Pink Floyd LP Cover Cake

Rockers rejoice and celebrate a special birthday with a legendary LP cover of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon!

A square vanilla sponge sits beside a half a circular sponge, a simple but very effective structure. Now, black isn’t the easiest colour fondant to work with, plenty of icing sugar the keep it from constant bad behaviour (sticking to everything it can). With a blast of edible glaze spray you’d never know how dusted in icing sugar this cake was during construction!

The prism design was hand cut, the edge dusted with black edible powder to soften the edge.

The perfect novelty cake for any crazy diamond cake fan 🙂

Chilli Chocolate Chilli cake!

It was quite an easy design choice of cake for restaurant supervisor Aye. She runs my Dad’d Thai restaurant in Hitchin (www.sukawatee.com), and eats A LOT of chilli!

I’d just bought a copy of Cupcake Heaven magazine which contains a chilli chocolate cupcake recipe, perfect! I used 1 x cupcake quantity per 30cm square tin, I used 2 square tins. Each layer was filly with chilli chocolate ganache.

After cutting the sponge into a thin block, I used a cut out chilli shape as my template. I then smoothed the sponge over with a layer of ganache, before covering with bright red fondant. Using an aerosol edible glaze by PME I lightly glazed the red fondant to give it a glossy chilli appearance.

To make the green top, I added an extra layer of fondant over the red and hand cut a zig-zag pattern to look like the leaves.
