Well here it is folks, the Featured Cake for August. See here at the cakery we love birthdays. Even more we love cake decorating. So this week is Sarah’s birthday. Sarah is a family friend. She is a great person, she loves people, she is quiet, friendly and well she likes the color orange. So in the spirit of her “unrequest” for just an orange cake, we decided that we would try something different. So we went with orange and black. Orange flowers and black vines. Two simple colors and Voilà!
You have the “Tiger Lily Cake”. If you don’t count the bottom border there are 30 flowers on the cake (oh and one for good luck)! Now I am suprised that this cake didn’t melt completely. It is still so hot here in the Lehigh Valley. But anyway this cake is a double layer white cake, with ganache fillinf in the center. If I had to do the cake over, I wold have included the piping gel to raise the mid sections of the flowers to make the tiger lily flowers just a bit more realistic. I coould add some green palm leaves but I may just have stuck with black palm leaves. I may do one again. But never the less. Happy 30th Birthday, Sarah!! I made you an “orange” Tiger Lily Cake.
