Cake Catch-Up

Wow, months have passed since my last update.... THATs how busy I've been with school!!! So, now that I'm back to reality its time to catch up... so you might be bombarded with several posts from me in the coming days.

Here are a few creations that I made under master cake artist Chef Nicolas Lodge! Chef Nicolas Lodge is a world renowned master cake and sugar artist. You might recognize him from the Food Network. Chef Nicolas made one of Princess Diana's wedding cakes and also made Prince William and Prince Andrew's baby shower cakes. Needless to say, it was a great honor to learn under such a talented and truly caring teacher!

This three tier wedding cake was designed by Nicolas Lodge and we learned various techniques as we made our own version of it.

We learned how to make drapes, puffy bows, a sugar broach and how to evenly scatter sugar pearls. The topper was a beautiful arrangement of gum paste calla lilies with a gardenia and mini orchid sprays.

Next cake... Winter Wonderland was also designed by Chef Nicolas Lodge. Again, loads of other techniques learned such as patchwork cutters, stenciling, molds, various painting techniques, and a bas relief snowman that turned out pretty darn cute if I say so myself.

Little gum paste vignettes...

 And one darn cute Snowman...
