“Made to order cakes are the most unique gifts that you simply can’t get from the mainstream stores”
Introducing Benny the Boston Terrier. If there’s an example of made to order cakes that are unique to the recipient, then this cake is it!
Benny’s owner wanted to get something special for her Mum. As she loves Benny to pieces, a cake that included him seemed the best fit. When I was approached to make the cake, I suggested perhaps the entire cake should be Benny as I desperately wanted to try the new style.
The filling for this design was a chocolate sponge, which was carefully carved into roughly the shape of the Boston Terrier.
(Tip: Cuttings from carved cakes can be made up into delicious cake jars to save wastage).
The shape of the dog was then fully made up using a covering over butter cream which can be plastered into shape. Once the cake set a little and I was happy with the shape, I then covered the fillings with fondant and pressed into place.
Then came the fun part of hand painting all of Benny’s unique features from a photo supplied. He was also supplied on a hand crafted fondant replica of his favourite blanket to give the full personalised touch.
The cake was greatly received by Benny’s Granny and the thoughtfulness and uniqueness of the gift made her day that extra bit special.
Whilst making fantastic gifts, cakes like this have also been used for couples who want their beloved pets to somehow be apart of their wedding day, too!
