Fondant couple

 

My auntie and her husband celebrated a joint 50th birthday, and the decoration ideas for their cake came from my auntie’s sisters.

The couple’s outfits came from their wedding, and in addition the cake had references to their shared garden project, children, pet tortoise and a hot tub.

The cake was filled with lactose free strawberry quark. All decorations were made out of fondant.

 

Congratulations, Irja and Jeff!

Pihka’s Christening cake

Pihka's Christening cake

 

Pihka (which means tree resin in Finnish) has a very close to nature name, so naturally her Christening cake was close to nature as well.

The cake was filled with lactose free raspberry quark and topped with lactose free caramel. The sides were covered with whipped cream and ground hazelnut. There was also real (edible) young spruce twigs for decoration.

 

Congratulations to Pihka and the entire family!

Wedding cake decorations

Yesterday a friend of mine got married, and I had the honour to make their wedding cakes’ decorations. The ideas for these decorations came from the couple, and the decorations tell a story close to their heart.

 

Congratulations, Paavo and Hanna!

Fisherman decoration

Fondant fisherman decoration

Fondant fish

 

This has to be my furthest travelled order so far, as this fisherman and the other post’s sailboat decoration were transported all the way to Utö (hopefully they also arrived in one piece).

The instructions for this decoration were to have a fisherman in a row boat lifting a fishnet, as well as flounders, trouts and European whitefish. However, due to lack of room, only one flounder and one trout made the cut, but the fisherman seems to have his hands full with them too!
