AFL Engagement Cake

Seven days ago I was asked if I would be interested in making an engagement cake for Del and Rusty with the following specifications:
  • Mud cake shaped like a footy oval
  • Figures of a couple sitting on a bench with a rug over their knees
  • Blonde hair on both figures and the man had to have a wink and be dressed in a Geelong [Cats] shirt!
  • A trophy in the background or hoisted high to celebrate the Cats winning the Premiership in 2007.

So of course I said "No problem"! 

So here is the result with a few minor alterations and the figures a little cartoon like. I added a scarf to unite the two and gave Del a rose to carry and Rusty a Sherrin football.

On collection, the customer said " I love it" 

I hope she likes the flavour of the cake. Under the icing are two square cakes one is a rich mud cake [need only a small piece as deliciously decadent] and then a 3 tiered chocolate cake sandwiched with sour cherry conserve. Both cakes covered with Chocolate ganache [did I mention rich?]

Here is the feedback received:

Dear Janet
Just wanted to say thank you so much for taking on the challenge of doing my cake. Secondly putting so much love into it. you did an amazing job. So many people commented on how delicious it was and how amazing your icing was. I'm telling everyone how great you are! I will be back soon for my wedding cake.
Thanks again ..... Delvene and Russell
