A very sinful chocolate cake for Aliya’s 12th birthday from her aunty Sherry. Rich chocolate sponge cake filled with chocolate ganache filling.
I came across this black cymbidium orchid in a Facebook Page – Orchidee – Orchids and immediately fell in love with this black orchid.
So what do I do since I am head over heels in love with this black orchid? Well…. I have made green, yellow, white, pink and maroon cymbidium orchids before. It’s time I try a black orchid. After some procrastination, as usual, here is my version of the black cymbidium orchid.
This is as close as I can get to replicate the colour of the actual black cymbidium. They look different but I love them both :)
I want to make it a habit to take pictures of my cakes as I make them. Many times, I just forgot about it as my hands worked on the cake. Well, this time I managed to use my camera phone to snap pictures of this boobs cake.
This is a naughty cake, a mild one though. This boobs cake was made for Adrian’s 21st birthday celebration, a present from his elder brother and sister.
I baked 2 chocolate cake using Wilton’s ball pan, crumb coated the cake with chocolate buttercream and placed them side by side on 2 cake boards (forgot to take a picture of this step) on top of a bigger cake board that has been covered with black fondant 2 days in advance. I covered the cake with skin coloured fondant and dressed the boobs in red fondant that has rose imprints, using a textured rolling pin. This was followed by the black lace trimmings and strings to finish off the dress.
