Gift Box Cake

This week a very dear and loyal client asked to order a ‘Bon Voyage’ cake for a collegue who was leaving. She likes vintage coral colours. So I thought why not make a vintage style hat box cake something I’ve been eager to try.

We thought this idea would fit perfectly for a farewell.

I started with a scrumtiously light and moist chocolate sponge. You cant go wrong with chocolate!

These delightful layers of sponge are then generously layered with a rich chocolate swiss meringue buttercream.

Stack and secured with ‘special’ straws.

      The cake is then coved with dark chocolate ganache that gives a perfectly smooth and sturdy finish.

Once the ganache is set, decorating can begin!!

Starting with the fondant.

All elements ready and waiting to spruce up the cake.

Ever so dear!
