Recently we had the extra fun task of designing a truly bespoke cake for an 18th Birthday with a whole range of elements.

Our brief for what the birthday girl loved was Stradbroke island, coffee, dogs, tequila and beach signs.

We wanted something soft and understated that allowed all the elements to shine on our custom cake.

Our birthday girl chose chocolate mud cake and vanilla bean buttercake for her two tier party cake. This custom cake was finished using a water-coloured textured ganache in Blues and whites to reflect the ocean.

Thus creating the perfect canvas for our custom cake design.

Almond sand was used on the bottom of each tier and a combination of real and fondant shells adorned this.

Using our barnacle tip we made ganache sea barnacles and continued along our beach theme.  We love how this extra element gives the cake more depth.

hand made fondant coffee cups with painted details and painted paw prints ticked dogs and coffee off the list!

We used Gold leaf to tie together our super cute tequila bottle and its little gold hat and ordered a custom 18 cake topper.

Our cake topper sat atop this custom cake in a pale opaque blue and was the perfect finishing element in our design brief.

We love how there are so many directions you can head with a truly custom cake.

It just shows how cake makers can design something specifically for you and your theme.

If you are searching for a Gold Coast or Brisbane Cake maker please allow us to create someting specifically for you.

lets celebrate soon
