Hi ev erybody!
This cake was for a thirtieth birthday celebration for a pal’s hubby, who I presume enjoys a tipple! 🍹
As their daughter is delicate to lactose, it was a dairy free sponge, flavoured with Sugar and Crumbs salted caramel icing sugar as substitute for caster sugar within the cake batter, and likewise to make the dairy free ‘buttercream’
The recipe is my commonplace sponge made with dairy free unfold (I take advantage of Tesco baking unfold) and the butter within the ‘buttercream’ was substituted with Flora Plant butter block.
After carving the cake, it was crammed and crumb coated then lined with Select Ireland platinum sugarpaste. I textured it with a Dresden device, then made up a ‘paint’ utilizing Coloursplash tree trunk and rejuvenator and acquired my paint brush out!
The stone impact was achieved by urgent strains into the paste with a ruler then texturing with a scrunched up piece of tin foil……very technical I do know, however efficient I feel?
I made up a wash utilizing Coloursplash black and rejuvenator and utilizing my paintbrush, utilized it by stippling relatively than simply brushing.
The bands across the barrel are strips of sugarpaste painted with WonderDust silver, as is the plaque, which was made utilizing a PME cutter 🙂 The ‘ice cubes’ are Fox’s glacier mints, and the alcohol was added by my pal.
All components are lactose free
Sugar and Crumbs flavoured icing sugars, Select Ireland sugarpaste, Coloursplash gel colors, rejuvenator spirit, PME plaque cutters, Cake Star letter cutters, Dresden device, drum boards and lustre brushes had been all bought from
I hope you prefer it 😁
Until subsequent time
Stay protected and wholesome
