Sound Desk Birthday CakeCricket Bat Birthday Cake

A couple of fun and funky birthday celebration cakes have gone out recently, one in East Grinstead West Sussex for an 18th birthday which was a huge cricket bat! This was a vanilla sponge and jam filled deep cake and covered in delicious vanilla fondant on a green iced board with a few tufts of hand iced grass for authenticity!
Gregory who turned 18 is a massive cricket fan and player and so this was organised by his mum as a surprise.
Having known Gregory myself since he was in nursery with my son Jake I knew this was the perfect cake for him!
It weighed an absolute ton and went down a storm.

The second cake was a Sound Desk style cake to be delivered to Cowden near Edenbridge in Kent and was a deep chocolate sponge filled with organic rich chocolate buttercream and covered in a soft vanilla fondant.
This was a fun one to do for a sound producer who was turning 50.
Having scoured pictures of sound desks, most of which are black or grey or a combination of both with lots of buttons, knobs and wires I knew where the design was coming from!
I decided to airbrush the whole birthday cake in shiny black and then set about making the knobs and buttons by hand along with a couple of plugs and wires and a display screen with a green line of a sound wave on it.
I set the whole cake on an iced board which I then painted and handcrafted to look like a wooden desktop and dangled a couple of wires from the plugs down the side of the cake. The effect was definitely rather fabulous even if I say so myself!
Transport was fun as it was to be met halfway and transferred into a Mini!
All arrived safely and was a great surprise to the whole family.

I do love a challenge!!

Well it is of to get some Christmas decs up now.
have a great week
love Mands xx
