Freshly and Lovingly done up : 6th Apr 2014
Someone called the cake I have done up yesterday an abstract art (see post on the 5th Apr 2014)
Perhaps the way I dressed it up today will look more like a cake.
If you have read the post yesterday ( the link above ), you will have known that I did not use the cream cheese frosting. So I have decided to dress up the cake using the cream cheese frosting that I have prepared instead.
I divided up the frosting into 2 portions. I added 1/2 tsp of charcoal powder into one portion and mix well.
I used a part of the plain portion to crumb coat the cake and let it chill for 1 hr.
After that hour of chilling, I scooped one portion of the plain portion into a piping bag followed by a portion of the charcoal powder cream cheese frosting into the same piping bag.
In this case, I piped the frosting into 5 vertical balls and I use the back of the spoon to create the design by dragging the frosting outward.
To be honest, my first attempt. I am trying to create a graduation of colour look. I used the same technique for the top portion and position black berries in the middle to create the center of a flower.
