Usually sticking to our standard bundt-style cakes, we were pulled out of our box, and were able to create this Harley Davidson themed cake for one of our clients. We had allot of fun with this cake, as it was surely a learning process. This was our first ever fondant cake, but we pulled it off beautifully.
We started with two layers of our Chocolate Cherry Brandy cake filled and covered with a succulent butter-cream style frosting.
Next, we layered black fondant, and created the worn leather look that was requested (and it’s not as easy as we once thought).
After the cake part was completed, we began accessorizing. We created a leather braid look that surrounded the bottom of the cake. Next, the “paved road” was created, as the client wanted to place a replica of their Harley on the road upon completion. We created roses from white fondant and painted them to add color. Additionally, we created a logo that would later be placed on the front side of the cake.
After assembling all of those pieces, the cake was still missing something. We decided to add silver studs around the top of the cake with flying hearts to set it off.
The final product was amazing (however we are still awaiting on those pictures). After the cake topper and motorcycle were placed, it made the perfect centerpiece for a Saturday celebration of marriage.
