Cars on Cake

The 2nd cake was made on 1st Sept 2012  for celebrating birthdays of two little boys who are devotees from our prayer group. The plan was to make three or four fondant (sugar paste) cars on the cake, however I could not imagine ignoring the other kids (devotees) so I made 10 different colored cars for all of them. I was unsure how so many cars would look but I decided to stick to the plan.

This was an egg less chocolate and vanilla flavor cake layered with cream. The theme of the cake was divine as it was specially made for our saint P. P. Pappaji and devotee kids. All the kids' cars are following saints car like Kakaji, Papaji, Bapu & Dada and going to Akshardham temple. P. Pappaji's car was entirely white as white is his favorite color. I used edible glue and pen to stick and write the name on the cars. 

I worked 16 hours altogether to complete this cake as there were many colorful fondant cars to be made at home. All the efforts were completely worth the effort when I saw the kids excitement and delight about having a car with their name on it. Everyone expressed that the cake was too beautiful to be cut and eaten!
We celebrated the birthdays & cut the cake in front of Thakorji. And due to divine blessing everyone said that the taste was simply unforgettable.
Thanks to Shree Thakorji and Guruhari Kakaji for making it more tasty with your blessings.

Lets get started on cakes..

I made many butter icing cakes in past for family and friends, but it was mainly limited to decoration. I thought it was a bit limiting and not much scope to use your imagination.  

The fondant cake opened a completely new avenue for me. I am grateful to my friend Shristi Misra-Prasad who gave a spark to my imagination and motivated me to jump into this amazing wonderland!
She shared lots of techniques as well as her expertise with me. I call her a CAKE MASTER. 
This website is quite amazing for egg less baking

The very first fondant cake I made on 30.08.2012 for my boss's baby shower celebration in the office. I selected white & pink for the baby girl on the way. Every one was delighted to see the cake on the table along with other delicacies. At the first look everyone assumed that the cake was ordered and all were totally surprised to hear that it was home made and even egg less! All were so appreciative while they came back for second helpings and they could still hardly believe that the cake was eggless! The cake was a huge hit and stole the lime light away!! My boss was very thankful and it was a feeling of satisfaction and achievement for me.

Any new venture cannot be started without meditating upon the divine power of my Guru and I seek His blessings to continue to find success in my creative ventures.

From then on there has been no looking back! More in posts to follow...
