My first birthday cake
This year I decided to make a cake for my sons birthday. Because he loves everything about farm, animals, I made him a farm cake. I went to the store to buy animals from marzipan, but I came home empty handed. So I decided to do those figures by myself. I bought marzipan (beige colour) and fondant mass (red, blue, green, black) and create farm animals. I made marcipan/fondant pig, cow, ducks, sheep, little ladybird.
For decoration of the whole cake I made different roses. I used plastic mould for the roses. It's great and very easy to use.
The dough of the cake: that's the recepie for the dough: http://www.kulinarika.net/
To translate, we need:
For the filling: strawberries (I used strawberries from compot, because I didn't get fresh ones), bananas and creame: vanilla pudding and sweet cream.
I decided to make a grass on the top of the cake. I tried this recepie for homemade fodant. I wasn't so happy about it, because it easily melted http://www.kulinarika.net/
Translation of the recepie for homemade fondant:
20 dag powdered sugar
20 dag milk powder
1 teaspoon oil
some cold water
The cake was a pretty big challenge, but I think I made it good.
Have fun and see you soon.
