Getting engage on the top of a mountain is surely romantic and for the engagement party I wanted to see if I could replicate the moment with a cake. The mountain was called Three tops and is located in Slovenia. Congratulations to my sister and her fiance.
My son wanted a Dusty cake with some of the other Planes characters for his 7th birthday cake. A more difficult challenge than the Cars characters but challenge taken and this was the result. Filling was banana and chocolate mousse.
The birthday girl gave me a drawing of what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday and it included different candy and a chocolate fountain! I wasn’t able to fulfill all her wishes but her school rucksack and a lot of candy did get included in this chocolate cake.
Ruben had his birthday and a favourite at the moment is Lightning McQueen and so that was to be the cake. He through in the wish for The King as well, so it was two cakes on one.
Another wish was a cake that tasted like Coca Cola, so that was anew challenge. The cars were made of chocolate cake with strawberry filling as you need a drier cake to make the car cakes.
The bottom, or the street and grass was then the coca cola cake. I found a great recipe for that and it was a very moist cake with just enough flavour of the coke not to overpower it all.

Sebastian turned 10 and as a keen football player this year he had wished for a football cake. It should be him with a ball standing against the football net.

So it became a cake where Sebastian stands against pillars of footballs and a net tossed in a pile. Sebastian was very sweet and said that actually this was really good as it showed him having such a fierce football kick that he broke the net :)
The cake was Sebastian’s favorite. Chocolate cake with dark and white chocolate mousse filling, raspberry jam and fresh kiwi pieces.
It was covered with chocolate butter cream and marsipan and sugarepaste.
