A few weeks ago the lovely Laura Jackson came to see me. She wanted a bespoke birthday cake to celebrate her 30th.
After showing me a picture of her dress, a beautiful pink Gucci number, we decided that the cake had to match.
So I got to work on a cake inspired by the pink Gucci dress.
The overall flavour of the cake was coconut. Its body consisted of a gorgeous coconut sponge with shredded coconut sandwiched between the layers with buttercream.
To match the Gucci dress, I settled on a delicate pink ombre effect for the decoration. I topped it off with seasonal flowers and gold details.
I think she looked happy with it as she blew out the candles!
Happy birthday Laura!
