My latest cake was a Baptism cake for a colleague's little boy. My colleague and his wife were fairly specific with what kind of design they wanted - they had found two designs that they loved and wanted me to make a 'hybrid' of the two cakes. So that left me with a a little bit of creative movement, but they definitely wanted the cake to be covered with white chocolate cream cheese icing rather than white fondant.
My first two thoughts when I received this cake order were (in this order):
1. OMG white chocolate cream cheese icing sounds absolutely HEAVENLY - why haven't I made it before?
2. I was excited about the design but also a bit worried that I might not be up to the challenge - not that it was a hugely difficult cake, but my specialty is fondant covered cakes and I've hardly made any butter cream and icing covered cakes to date.
I'm not one to shy away from a challenge though, so of course I accepted the order.
