This cake was made for a special friend of mine as a surprise. Jana is a beautiful lady that I am very lucky to call a friend. Last weekend a group of ladies, including Jana, travelled down to Bowral for our annual ladies weekend away. Jana is turning 40 later this month and we wanted to do something to celebrate.
Jana works in the music industry and is PASSIONATE about everything to do with music! A vintage record platter was the first thing that came to mind when thinking of a cake.
I kept the cake detail to a minimum and used a faux wood grain panel for the record player and silver as the detail in all the components. Apart from the arm of the record player and the turn table and pedestal (which have inedible components), the rest is all handmade and edible.
This cake was a huge surprise for Jana at a special dinner we had on Saturday evening. She was blown away and loved it. I have never laughed so hard as I did on Saturday night! I love these Bowral ladies!
The cake is a carrot/walnut cake with white chocolate ganache.
Happy 40th Jana!
