Beauty is not in the face;
beauty is a light in the heart. - Kahlil Gibran
Melanie reached out through a fb page that I follow for a cake , yup cake is the magic word that always grabs my attention. Her post reached out to the community asking for a cake donation for their agency’s annual event for Foster care children. Being an agency relying on govt funding to operate, their resources to hold events and purchase presents for the children is limited and hence why they reach out to the local community for help. I put my hand up and offered my services. Melanie gave me their theme colours - white, black, green and gold, guest numbers and also mentioned that a few of the children (girls) were turning 18 and that this cake would also be used as their birthday cake. She left the design up to me and this is what I came up with.
Every child’s heart is a little diamond in the making and at 18 that little diamond is taking shape and shining bright. I wanted to bring that element into the design and so chose to create a diamond shape as the framework. Within the frame was room, room to grow and learn from nature and so I filled that frame with gorgeous blooms in their theme colours adding a bit gold. The cake itself had a separator between the tiers to not only help create height but also add space for the blooms to be added to. I gave the cake a textured finish to contrast with the frame.
The Cake: Outrageous chocolate cake layered with vanilla Swiss buttercream and iced with dark chocolate ganache.
