Today’s bake for the school girls at Brisbane girls grammar
Putting the finishing touches on an 18th Birthday cake. The client was looking for a realistic looking adult cake for her son’s 18th. The cake is a traditional Mississipi Mud with Bourbon. The neck is made from solid chocolate, blended white, milk and dark create a woodgrain appearance. the Body and neck are iced with Fondant and the string made with Sugar Veil. I also sprayed the silver design with food safe color and created the design myself incorporating 18 and vampire or wolf teeth. When delivered the customer was stoked and could not wait to show her son at the celebrations.
New Idea. How would wedding cakes for each of the tables at the reception be. a larger on for bridal table and enough for each guest at the other tables. Use them like centre pieces.
Please leave your thoughts.
Trained very traditionally by Master Chef Myles Seymour. Under his expert guidance I learnt to work, act, live and love as a Chef. We had a special passion for Pastry and Artist expression. While serving my Apprenticeship I received many accolades from within the Industry and from the community. Being indentured to Government House Brisbane for my first Five Years my skills were honed to Michelin star levels. Among other fantastic posting around Brisbane and the Gold Coast I was privileged enough to be selected to work on The Great South Pacific Express, the Orient Express train traveled between Cairns and Sydney. The Carriages were all hand crafted from local timbers and endangered master craftsmen. Many of the fitting and fixtures were one of bespoke items and the Staff were similarly hand selected from many highly skilled applicants. Serving First class meals on a moving boutique hotel is an experience I will never forget and one that for me will forever be missed. Unfortunately the train was decommissioned after 5 years of operation.
While working my free time was often taken up practising and creating for friends, family and customers. I truly believe that every edible art piece that I create reflect a little of the passion and love that I have for Pastry, cakes and center pieces. Please view the images I have placed in this Gallery and dream up some amazing creation for your celebration and challenge me, you won’t be disappointed.
