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…

Santa cakes

These were some of many, many Christmas cakes I did over the jolly season and boy was it fast and fun! I got so many orders I felt like I was doing a cake every day up until Christmas as well as raising my boys, working and moving house on Boxing day! I loved every second of it though and can’t wait for next Christmas!

These cakes were traditional Christmas cake which all my clients raved about (quite good considering it was my second attempt at a fruit cake! )
