My lovely sister's birthday is on 16th Dec.
I decide to bake this violin fondant cake for her.
Hope this 3D violin can surprise her on her birthday!
The reason that i choose this theme for her cake is because she is studying music in university now, and her major is violin. I guess she will love this fondant 3D violin cake!
That is dark chocolate butter cake and chocolate ganache inside the fondant. I hope my sister and her course-mate will like this flavor.
For me, this is really a big project for me! I treat this cake as my 2011's Big Project!!!
I spend so long time to think about how can i make a violin cake in real size and i want to make it looks like a real violin. ^_^ i work very hard on this special cake!
But, finally it turns out not like what i am imagined. It just looks 45% same to the real violin...
I need to do more practice to make it prefect !
To create this violin,
I make all the parts few days before.I create the tailpiece, chinrest, bridge, neck, fingerboard, scroll and pegbox few days before and leave it there to let it dry and set. It has to be dry and set before use to decorate the cake.
I start bake the chocolate one day before my sister's birthday. Covered the cake with fondant icing, then start paint with food coloring to make some wood pattern on it. Following by stick on all the violin parts that i have created few days before.
The last step is to add the violin strings on the cake!!!!
