CAKE FLAVOR: Funfetti
FILLING(S): Italian Meringue Buttercream
OUTER FROSTING: Italian Meringue Buttercream
DECOR: White Chocolate Sail/Bowl
This cake was made specifically for me to practice a few techniques: Italian meringue buttercream, the cement look, and a chocolate sail. I had an order for a funfetti cake which I've never made from scratch before, so I used this as an opportunity to test out a recipe as well..
This was my first time making Italian meringue buttercream. It wasn't that difficult but it did take quite a bit of time. I even broke the meringue a little, but good old YouTube showed me a way to recover from it.
As for the design, a few of my Instagram inspirations have been doing this concrete and more industrial look which I love. So I tried to recreate the look the way I thought they might do it and I think I was pretty successful. The only thing I still need to master is, tempering my chocolate.
