What does a parrot handled umbrella, floral print tapestry bag and a spinning carousel have in common?
Nothing except that Mendy implemented all of these elements to create a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious cake!
We got a call from our friend at Cal-tech's Atheneum inquiring about a last minute cake order for one of their members. Their daughter was turning 4.
Well the birthday girl loves Mary Poppins and everything Mary Poppins. So a Mary Poppins Cake is what Mendy made for her.
Talk on the street is that Mary Poppins herself showed up at the party and even led a kite flying contest.
I was a bit shocked when I walked into the bakery and caught Mendy watching Mary Poppins-she said she was doing research-her research lasted the whole show!
After her research Mendy came up with this design..
The cake was to have Mary Poppins floral tapestry bag-edible, her fancy parrot handled umbrella (non-speaking-phew) penguins, spoonful of sugar, as well as other elements and oh yes a carousel-
I was even more shocked when she told me she promised the client that the carousel would spin-great, more time in the wood shop for me.
Well Mendy made a fantastic cake-I know I know some of you as we do often wonder, it looks good but how does it taste? Well I would bet money that her cakes are pretty Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. I am sure those of you who have had her cakes can vouch for me. Ingredients are the key!
So now for the cake-the cake was our Old Fashion Natural Red Velvet Cake (why is it natural? Pureed Beets for the color) layered with Godiva white chocolate cream cheese butter cream.
The other tiers were my favorite-Chocolate Blackout cake. Each tier has 4 layers of cake filled with dark chocolate ganache, white chocolate swiss buttercream sprinkled with Valrhona crunchy pearls.
All of this cake talk is making me crave some cake! I wonder if Mendy has any cupcakes left from her 2500 cupcake order from last week?
