I got asked to make a Fox Head Logo cake. Initially it was just going to be the shape of the Fox Head Logo. However after looking at some designs on Google Images I decided to do the baseball cap.
I had to use the Wilton ball shape cake tin, to get the natural dome shape. I did think of carving it out, but wasn’t sure if I could pull off the shape I needed to achieve.
The logo is completely cut out from fondant. I traced the image and then using the pin method transferred to the fondant. Then I cut it out with a scalpel – slowly!
Considering it’s only about 2 inches big, it took a while to finish. The colour green is the favourite colour of Ben whose birthday cake it was.
I then brushed the green fondant with a green lustre dust to sparkle. The black fondant backing has some piping gel brushed to give it a different look. All the cake is edible, and the gold is edible paint.
I did start the cake the night before delivery, however after baking the cakes, for whatever reason, and not doing anything different from I would normally, the cakes didn’t rise. So instead of panicking. I set my alarm early and started again at 7am, and baked, decorated and delivered all by 11.30am. I would n’t normally do this, as I like a little breathing room! And cutting into freshly baked cake is a nightmare, as it just falls apart.
Some of you will know due to previous blogs, that my husband and I are renewing our vows next year – to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. And I have been drawing designs for our wedding cake. I think I have settled on the final design, unfortunately I am not going to share it with you until after the big day. I will share that it will be all in ivory, 4 tiers and will have simple decoration reflecting the day and the theme. It also will have an element of lace in the design.
For now, all is quiet, my next cake is a belated birthday cake for my Mum, as during her birthday I had a surprise bout of severe tonsillitis and instead of celebrating her birthday she was looking after my girls instead. And my youngest daughters birthday is in 3 weeks. She has about 3 designs she is looking at, 2 with a princess castle theme. So I can already see pink fondant!
