Now lets talk cake! From Mendy's and her clients (Mr Philip and Fiona) mind to this blog! I would like to share this Winter Wonderland Cake.
First the stuff that makes you go hhmmm, the cake or as I like to call it-edible art was a combination of my FAVORITE chocolate blackout cake with Valhrona crunchy pearls and Mendy's in house European buttercream-(tasty) and her traditional Old fashion Red Velvet cake, as you all know and some may not, Mendy makes her Red Velvet with fresh organic beets, and no food coloring, each layer is smothered with her in house Godiva White Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttercream. Yes it is good.
The cake was decorated with a thin layer of white chocolate fondant. The first layer was shaped like a carved pillow for Mr. Jack Frost's head. Mendy hand rolled the quilted pattern and put individual sugar pearls, then surrounded each layer with "ice" looking sugar, then to give it some pizzaz she made these cool looking "winter" spiky flowers and some dark modeling chocolate branches....but wait there is more..
Since it was a winter theme, she decided to make some sugar icicles from poured sugar. Since the sugar icicles were very fragile so she had to put them on at the wedding. Yeah I was stressing because of time but Mendy-cool as her cake looked.
She carefully layered them to give them a melting affect the result? A super chilling white hot Winter Wonderland Cake!
With the help of the always creative and super awesome florist Fleuretica and the super duper schedule juggler and party planner extraordinaire Kelley from Picture Perfect Events this was the end result-pretty cool in my opinion!
