Sristi Book Release Cake

All in all, I’m fairly happy with the end result on this cake. It took me all of yesterday, and a few hours this morning (I finished somewhere around 1:30 after photographing, etc.) and here it is. If this was a full price commission it would have been a little more detailed, but for the money paid (about 1/2 price) I think it’s pretty generous! I’ve included a photocopy of the actual book cover for comparison. Here’s a link for the actual book, Sristi by Sharmila Desai. For anyone interested in ordering cakes, chocolates or any other confections … don’t forget to check out SweetElement!

Shiny chocolate is so hard to photograph!

The buttercream sides of the cake were combed to look like pages.

[Just got paid the remainder for the cake, got an extra $10 – and the icing on this order – was being told the cake was worth at least $300 if not more. I love hearing things like that. I’ve given a whole stack of cards along with the cake, so hopefully this will bring me some more orders and expand the business.]

[Ms. L.P. – I’m throwing down some red ribbon on the floor tonight!!!]

  1. This is absolutely stunning. I can’t even imagine what a ‘full price’ commission would look like. I’m not a baker or a cake maker, but I think its fantastic.

  2. Absolutely awesome! Re: Red Ribbon…I suggest a bunch of it. Not just a strand. 😉

  3. Awesome! Looks delicious too.
