So the main reason I've not been around dA much lately, have been failing at replying to your comments and notes and at just generally being a CV, is because over the last month I've gotten a random weird influx of commissions. Like so weird. I haven't received a commission all year and now I randomly have 6 of them. So basically my life has involved standing in the kitchen staring at cake for a month.
This is one of the cakes I was commissioned to do for a little boy's 3rd birthday. Their family was actually one of the first people to comission me back when I made to cakes for his 1st birthday.
The brief for this one was for a simple yellow racing car with black stripes. On the front and back they wanted number plates with "Viyasan" (the boy's name) on them, and the number 3 on the sides of the cake.
The cake is a moist chocolate cake I carved by hand, then layered and crumb-coated in chocolate ganache, then coated in a layer of whipped chocolate ganache. The rest is fondant.
