Archangel Michael Birthday Cake & Treats

Natalie (from the previous Circus christening and Mickey & Minnie) had a busy November.  

The weekend after the Christening was her hubby's 30th birthday.   She had planned this surprise birthday for a some time and it was to be a little affair with big impact!   She had invited 20 of their nearest and dearest to spend a long weekend up with them in Port Stephens.   She had arranged a fantastic birthday lunch up there on the Sunday and wanted to set up another dessert table.

When it came to the theme, her hubby Jacques is very passionate about St Michael the Archangel.   She decided to theme everything around that and that is where I came in.

I designed a cake that looked like St Michael was coming out (on laying on it).   Everything was handmoulded and completely edible.   It was also to scale as I had the statue to work from.   The cake was the slab underneath and this was angled so that the angel could be displayed, not too much though, the cake had to travel for 3 hours on a hot November day!

I also made all the other sweet treats for the table.   I made angel wing cookies, cake pops, angel wrapped chocolate bars as well as pannacottas that were displayed in these candle holders that Natalie found (love her work!)   She did a great job - considering she did not even know what the venue had to offer!
These photos were taken by Natalie at the venue.

Happy 30th Birthday Jacques!
