A little Angel’s Journey to One Cake April 7, 2012

Sometimes you get interesting request that really peaks your interest. This cake would certainly fall into that category. When Vsh first contacted me she was planning her daughter Avshaanya’s first birthday. Vsh is based in the States and was planning to travel back to Singapore to celebrate her little one’s birthday with family and friends. Torn between an angel theme and a round-the -world theme (featuring the different places Avshaanya been to ; Paris, London, San Francisco where they are based and Singapore where she was born), I figured why loose precious sleep over this ,let’s merge the two and so this cake was born. I created each country’s landmarks as toys to make the cake more child like.  This was one of those cakes where my heart ruled my mind. Knowing that creating the landmarks (Merlion for Singapore, Eiffel tower for Paris, Big Ben for London and Golden Gate bridge for San Francisco) out of sugar would be challenging , I was tempted to turn down the request but my heart over-ruled , I just had to give it a go. Here then is the finished product, I’m glad my heart over-ruled my mind.

Made this cake for a SIA  graduating class.

A vintage suitcase plastered with travel stickers for the well-heeled traveller and of course the Globe with flowerpaste continents and oceans.

Travel stickers are made from fondant and totally edible.
