Here’s one of Sweet Element’s latest cakes that was delivered to the upper east side in Manhattan yesterday. It was our first delivery where we braved a NYC cab delivery (since I really did not think there was any way for me to make it up there alone at rush hour driving the Sweet Element wheels) – and I’m happy to report that I had an *awesome* cabbie & safe ride for both me & the cake!
The cake was a pink velvet cake, filled with vanilla pastry cream, frosted in vanilla moussaline buttercream and decorated in fondant. The lil’ animals are made of a combination of fondant, gumpaste & modeling chocolate.
Yet another SweetElement creation! A friend of my co-worker’s who planned the baby shower that I made my first jungle baby shower cake for wanted to order a similar cake with cupcakes for one of her co-workers, and here’s the result! I was fairly happy with the cupcake stand as well ~ even though it was made out of styrofoam, it was really easy to assemble and didn’t “shed” like a lot of other styrofoam products I’ve seen in the past.
The cake was a devil’s food cake filled and frosted with chocolate buttercream and decorated in chocolate and topped with fondant animals. The cupcakes were an assortment of devil’s food cake and yellow cake topped with multi-colored buttercreams.
Handmade fondant animals … too cute!
The client requested chocolate “dot” decorations that would work with the jungle theme on the cupcakes, which I think tied them together with the cake very nicely 🙂
