Okay, so we all know the Queen of the semi-naked cake is the dear Nikki Albertyn of the lovely food blog Gathered and confectionary studio Lion Heart. If you’re not already following both instagram accounts then you should do that right away. I’m always in such awe of her wonderlandesque creations and attention to sprinkle detail. But this weekend it was I who was getting naked for the first time…well… semi-naked. I received a request to make a lovely flower-topped, semi-naked cake for a birthday lass turning 21! I had never made one before and jumped at the opportunity. I have been in such anticipation to try my hand at it! My buddy Claudi and I moved my laundry table next to my washing sink in my tiny little sun room and decided to document the process because:
-flowers were to be involved
-600g of white chocolate was to be melted down into 3 layers of white choc cake
-Vanilla Italian Meringue Buttercream was to be swished
-a Saturday could be spent baking and giggling in good company
Need we say more?
