A cake with flowers
by Meena Mustafa
I made this cake with flowers two days ago and the flowers that you see on the cake were also made by me using gum paste.
My passion is baking and decorating cakes and even when I am asleep I dream of cakes :) I love doing the art work for the cake and someday want to be recognized as a pastry chef:) That's my dream come true.
My Flower Cake:
This was entirely my creation. I made the cake from scratch and for the filling I made strawberry and fig icing. A unique flavor but delicious! I made the gum paste flowers using 50/50 fondant and gum paste so that the flowers would not crack after drying.
It took me five hours to finish all the gum paste flowers and once they were dried I used airbrush to color them then painted the edges with petal dust. The final coat was of confectioners glaze for the shine.
I was pleased with the outcome and I know that hard work pays off. My instructor was very pleased with my work too. I even dream about cakes and having my own pastry shop someday So never stop dreaming your dreams and keep on trying and with practice you will succeed.
