Here is the cake I made for my friend’s 40th birthday recently. You may remember the tri-shutter card I made for her that I posted previously.
The cake is 14” square, weighs over 5 kilos and took me several hours to assemble!
Inside the cake comprises of 1 layer of vanilla sponge topped with 1kg of nutella chocolate spread, 1” thickness of fresh whipped cream followed by another layer of vanilla sponge. That was then covered with lashings of my nutella and chocolate icing and decorated with chocolate lace swirls, chocolate lace flowers and chocolate lace butterflies! The butterflies were the most difficult to make with the wings and body of the butterfly made as one piece. They were very fragile and needed to be supported until the chocolate had set completely.
My friend was speechless when she arrived to pick the cake up. I thought she was going to cry! A number of guests at the party ended up taking heaps of photos of it for her as she didn’t want to cut into it! I would love to hear what you think.
