The Great Gatsby Cake

The Great Gatsby Cake, Black Gold, Logo building black ganache.


Hi Everyone I hope your holidays have been treating you well? Thought I would just quickly share my Great Gatsby themed cake with you all!

I have had such a super crazy week and I madly put this cake together at the last minute. My original design was going to be a fair bit different but due to circumstances out of my control I had to quickly redesign it.

I was upset my originally planned flowers and feathers didn't make it - OMGOSH!!  Never and I mean NEVER rush large flowers - they will just not dry in time!  Ooops! And they don't like to be moved before hand!


Have a look at what didn't make it - I think my edible  wafer paper feathers came out awesome! I am super keen to make another cake using edible feathers and flowers in the future - but definitely at a less hectic time of year!

The Great Gatsby Edible Cake toppers 1920,s edible wafer paper feathers,Pantone colour of the year Masala inspired flowers made of fondant.
What was not meant to be!


I feel a bit disappointed that it didn't all work out as originally planned but my friend said she was happy so hopefully she really was! LOL!! And I do feel a lot more confident in attempting large flowers again.

Oh and of course this cake is covered in Black Coloured Ganache. Instead of using white chocolate, I used Dark and coloured with Americolor Super Black. (My normal Coloured Ganache Recipe is here)


Thanks so much for looking! 

P.S. And Happy new Year everyone! I just realised this was my first cake for 2015! 

What do you think? Did I convey the Great Gatsby Theme despite missing the accessories? Let me know in the comments section below! (I love comments!)
