New Peacocok Wedding Cake

The peacock wedding cake is so popular among Indians. This is our latest peacock cake design. Instead of gumpaste feathers, the client requested for 'real' feathers, she bought the features from Little India, Penang. 

The cake was decorated with lotsa sugar beads and stones. I tried to make them shine by brushing a layer of corn syrup on them. The peacock looked more natural as compared to my creation few years back, do you agree?

When I look at my cake, I tend to forget about the flavours of cake that I did. Perhaps I should come out with more interesting new flavours that would make an impact into my brain. 

Oh yeah, recently, I have finally included red velvet flavour into our flavour list. Also, we have this traditional pandan flavour added. Within a short period of introduction, the red velvet cake has gained some good comments from our clients. Red velvet plus cream cheese is simply killing to my own tastebuds, I guess you should give it a try too.

Three Ponies Cake

I love ponies. To make these ponies, it took me 2 days, they were much more difficult to make than I had thought of.  I was extremely happy with the result though. Every details count, especially their eyes, three of them had three different eye shapes, brows and colors. As we know, the soul of an animal is portrayed from its eyes, once its soul is 'created', it is alive.

I used a mixture of gumpaste and fondant to sculpt them, not the usual CMC added fondant. It helped to strengthen the structures, the ponies wouldn't fall in the process of drying and they would stand firm for a long time.

Modelling of sugar figurines is therapeutic if you're not in a rush to finish it off, that's the reason that I have always wished that I could have plenty of time  to execute a cake design. However, in commercial world, it's simply a luxurious dream for me.
