Cool Bikini Cake for 40th Birthday
My hubby turned fourty last month and I threw a big bash for him! Made him a bikini cake at home for about 75 of his friends … The cake was 15 by 24 inches in size. That s huge! It was made from chocolate genoise sponge with dark chocolate ganache as the filling . Used an orange flavoured soaking syrup with grand marnier liqueur . Crumb frosted with non dairy whipped cream . The bra cups were made be similar cake baked in semicircular moulds and stuck on top with ganache! Frosting was non dairy whipped cream tinted with americolor soft gels . Torso with flesh tone and bikini with red Colour . Needed a lot and lot of red to get the dark shade for the bikini. The trim was pearl sugar and royal icing flowers . the body was the most time consuming to get an even finish . Used a silver coloured sugar pearl for the belly botton detail! he loved it as much I loved making it! Tasted yummy too’…..
