This one was a pina colada cake (coconut cake layers brushed with a Malibu coconut rum sugar syrup, filled with brown sugar coconut crunch and iced in a pineapple mousseline buttercream).
It was for a couple who married in Mexico and were having a reception here but wanted to bring the Mexican theme into the cake. There are gumpaste chili peppers around the base of the cake and a gumpaste sombrero, maracas and cacti on the top of the cake. A few scattered red fondant flowers complete the look.
I hope the weather was as summer-y as the cake flavor for this celebration!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
