Banting Laptop and Stove Birthday Cake
My daughter and her husband follow a Banting Lifestyle so I decided to make something special just for them.
Being programmers, the cake had to reflect their professions but I did not want to make the same cake so I had to compromise a bit.
For my daughter I made a Blue Velvet Cake with butter cream icing. I covered and decorated only the stove with fondant. On top of the stove is a pan with eggs and bacon to show their Banting Lifestyle. The roses on the rectangle cake were made with fondant. I’ve watched so many videos in getting the roses right, but is still learning every day.
My daughter’s husband’s cake was also a lot of fun. I made him a laptop cake standing on a cake table. The laptop was a vanilla cake that was covered with white fondant. I then cut out black fondant and painted the letters on with white gel colour. The lettering on the screen was printed on edible paper.
The cake table was a chocolate cake that I covered with fondant and painted it with blue. I used butter cream as a filling for both the cakes. . This cake took a long time to make, but was so worth it.
My daughter and husband was absolutely amazed with their cakes.
