Hi everyone,I hope you are all well :-)
Ive been asked to do a 40th Wedding Anniversary Cake for the 20th of this month, and i need some ideas? Ive been making coffee cakes for the couple for a number of weeks now and they have asked me to do thier anniversary cake! So i want it to be brill.
Ive seen some pictures but im not sure what to go with. Its to be either an 8 or 9 " cake and has to have 40th on it basically. Although i think it needs a little something else or it will just look like a birthday cake !!!
Thanks for any help
Hi Lis - yes, I believe you can use rejuvenator spirit to thin your gel. Embossing mat - fab, lucky you!
lol - I have had the odd mishap with steaming, mostly because I've left them in the steam too long and they've gone floppy...........
Thanks Katy, ive bought an embossing mat and a flower former ( a Petunia) had to pay a little extra to get them in time but worth it. Ive got some rejuvenator could I use that to thin the gel ?
I will try the steaming too hopefully they wont fall in the kettle spout LOL
Oh no ! I hope I don't have the same prob !!
If you hear any screaming i've dropped one inside the kettle lol
I saw a steamer in my local charity shop yesterday, mite be worth getting !
The embossing mat was only £4.15, thought that was quite reasonable. I had to get one to do all the cakes at easter !
Thank you so much Katy, I did think about putting a red ribbon round but it didn't look right at all, was too much. Glad I got it right, I hadn't done a flower spray before !
I would of liked it to of been a deeper cake but it was only for two people and they didn't want a huge cake. using 2 normal 8" tins wouldn't of been deep enough and 2 of my 3" deep tins would of been too much !
A closer shot of the flowers. They look wet but its the lustre dust. I learnt a lot from doing this one. I loved doing the flower spray !!
Thank again Katy
I think you're right about the ribbon, it would have cluttered it. Gosh, they're really glossy and lush
Had to use bf s camera with the flash so they look like there wet but I would of liked the plain red roses a little darker, like your roses. Bf took the pics lol ! he said it looked "stunning" ( that was a shock from him lol ) and he took the pictures. Would love to do another like this.
