Fernridge school 150th jubilee

Recently I was honored to make the cake for my son’s school as it was celebrating its 150th year open!  We had a jubilee and it was so awesome, the organizers did a great job. There was a balloon release ceremony,  photos of past students (including me! 1997-2001) and a cake cutting ceremony with the youngest student and oldest living past student. It was a great day and I’m so proud to have been a part of it, it is such a great little school. 
So this is the cake I made….

You cant tell but it was quite big… 35 by 35 cm. And very, very heavy!
The cake was 2 layers of fruit cake with a layer of almond buttercream.  Then on top is white fondant.
The ‘koru’ is the school’s logo so I airbrushed that on with a custom made stencil.
Then i used an extruder to make the black out-line.
The fluer di lis is also air brushed on using a stencil. 
The letters were cut with my funky tappit set and sprayed with edible silver spray paint and left to dry.

For the sides of the cake I used the quilted design and edible gold and silver bling.
I also made a pearl border to go around the cake which i painted with an edible pearl paint. 
Here is a photo of the side close up…

My first cake order!

This cake is where it all began for me!  After making this cake I knew that this was what I wanted to do forever. I’ve grown up never knowing what I wanted to be when I grew up and never feeling like I was great at anything. Once I had kids and started making cakes for them I realised my passion for cake decorating. And my family must of felt it too because my awesome Aunty C asked me if I’d be interested in making my cousin a big 21st cake and that they would pay me! Of course I said yes but I don’t need to be paid as it was a special family occasion and so we agreed that they would pay ingredients. The cake turned out awesome, I was so proud that I had made that big cake and my family were all very impressed and surprised! From then on I have had the confidence to put myself out there and things have blossomed for me. So a special Thanks to my Aunty C and Uncle S for igniting the flame and giving me the confidence boost I needed to get where I am today,  love you lots! 🙂
