This weekend’s cake creation was for a young piano virtuoso who was turning 9. It was enjoyable creating all the little decorative elements to be placed on the cake. I made them a week prior so that they could harden and dry. Reminded me of the days when I was a kid, I loved plasticine. I used to make these miniature slices of cake complete with a cherry on top, placed them on mini plasticine plates and serve them to my mum together with miniature teapot and teacups. There were also many mishaps with my plasticine melting on our driveway as I attempted to soften them in the sun and duly forgot about them.
Ok ,back to the cake, created a piano with a metronome for the little pianist.As an added element of fun, I also decided to add a greedy pup taking a bite out of the birthday cake.
