It's no secret that hand painted cakes are my favourite cakes to create and I do have kind of a bucket list of cake styles that I'm secretly hoping that clients will ask me to create. I have to say that the Amalfi/Positano style lemon themed cake was one of those cakes that I was really hoping that somebody would contact me to create and when that did happen, my heart skipped a little beat!
The cake featured hand painted lemons around the base as well as hand made fondant lemons, blossoms and foliage. I don't make a lot of flowers myself as it's such a time consuming art form in itself but I was so pleased with how these elements came together on the cake, I even surprised myself at how realistic it looked.
Can you guess what flavour the cake was? While I do offer a delicious lemon and coconut cake which would have been perfect, my client opted for chocolate and vanilla swirl cake. I'm curious, how do you feel about eating things that you expect will be a certain flavour based on how it looks but it turns out to be something different? For me, I would have found it strange to have a lemon themed cake in a chocolate flavour, but hey, everyone's different!
