This cake goes along with the Pink & Purple pregnant belly cake that I made below. The customer ordered two cakes for the special occasion!!! This is an 8 inch round cake covered in fondant and decorated with two beautiful hand crafted elephants, fondant flowers and hand painted circles. I looked at a picture of elephants and used a knife to carve the fondant images but alas I have found and easier way to do this (for next time...lol). I will share that technique on another blog post. This was a cute little cake that took no longer than an hour to decorate and the customers really enjoyed it!
My intentions of this blog are to of course showcase my talents but also to encourage others to bake! I want to show people that you do not have to attend a culinary arts school (if you do, that is obviously great!) to be successful in the baking business. You do not need super expensive equipment or a large oven to get wonderful and professional looking results. I have been in this business for a few years and I have learned so much without taking one class! And I want to share with you what I have learned.
