This past weekend was my nephew and brother in-law’s birthday’s. My sister called and ordered one big ass cake for both of them to which I said, errrrr yaahhhhh!
The order: A 10 inch and 3 layered maderia cake enrobed in fresh blueberry buttercream, rocket ship and stars with virgo insignia all around the sides of the cake. I would also like a deep blueberry colour so that the white buttercream against it will have a deep contrast so add some purple colouring to the butter cream.
After agreeing to all of this and actually getting down to the business of mixing the buttercream with the coulis….the colour was so amazingly purple that I left out the colouring. I served up the cake like this and she didn’t notice. I only told her the day after and she was well pleased going ahead to say it tastes and looked so good that it didn’t need anything added to it and I concur! These powerful babies didn’t need any help at all as they stood up nice and strong to that white buttercream…Oooo yeah 😉
When my nephew saw the cake he was like…”Look, space swhip on top the cake and shtarss” in the cutest little voice ever….my heart went blob and melt! If I was buttercream, I would have spilled my melted self all over the table.
Ok here we go, enjoy the pics….
Sorry I forgot to take a picture after beating the coulis into the butercream..’Twas a long process of tasting and adding and tasting and adding more and so on but got there in the end.
