Three of the cakes were Ube Macapuno. Filipinos do not seem to get enough of this...and understandably so. The fourth cake was for the surprise masquerade themed birthday party of my niece. It was a two-layered mocha chiffon with creamy vanilla frosting. I had a lot of fun making it.
|Except for the candle and the skewers, everything else on the cake was edible.|
|I was really proud of this gumpaste masquerade mask. I got the idea on how to make it from this forum.|
The colour combination on the cake ended up like that first of all, because my niece's favourite colour is purple. And then, I made the mask green because I only had green lustre dust on hand and I wanted the mask to have that extra glow. The pink, I added last, and only because I've seen the three colours combined in fabric.
The fabrics on this pincushion (my latest) was from a vintage fabric roll that came with 25 lengths of six different prints. I reckoned that if the fabric makers thought this combination was good then it probably would look good as well on my cake! Do you think so too?
Enjoy the week ahead!
