Jake loves the iconic 1965 film The Sound of Music, and so do we! So we had great fun creating a musical masterpiece after Jake's partner commissioned our services!
The cake is a tall 8 inch vanilla sponge, filled with real buttercream and strawberry jam. We covered the cake in Swiss Massa Ticino Sugarpaste - generally regarded as the best fondant in the business, and airbrushed the valley detail. On the side of the cake you can actually see the airbrushed grass, mountains and fluffy clouds. On the side of the cake, we made a mountain backdrop out of fondant, with ice crystals on the peaks.
The classic Maria figure is hand crafted and completely edible, with the lower half of her body made from tasty Rice Krispie treats! She sits on grass that we've made from royal icing, not buttercream, which helps to keep the fondant beneath it crisp, and ensures the highest quality. We've added white edelweiss flowers to fit in with the Sound of Music theme.
We've even added the sheet music to the infamous song, so you can sing along with Maria to "The hills are alive, with Sound of Music".
