Hmm... Well. End of Financial Year - A time when many places hold sales, others just close up shop and go out partying... And me? Well, I just bake.
I showed said drawing to my husband, and once he'd finished rolling his eyes at the intensity (or in his words "stupidity") of what I wanted to make, he said "No one will get the money colour reference."
... So I added dollar signs to it :)
After that, I relied heavily on Cupcake Addiction's YouTube tutorials - and made:
|My giant chocolate patty case :)|
I know the colours aren't exactly on the money (ha, get it) but if I had more time, money (ha, again), and resources to re-do it, I still probably would have done it the same way... Except maybe make the pink on top a bit lighter. And the yellow a bit golden, and the green darker, okay okay, I'll stop. It was good practice making a giant cupcake!
I tied a ribbon around the base, because (I think) the weight of the cake was making it split a bit, and I wanted to give it a bit more support, and not have it fall to pieces as it sits on the train city-bound. It's a bonus that it also looks pretty:
Here it is (after surviving the train ride) with some little 'EOFY'
additions, set up at my husband's work place:
Happy End of Financial Year!!
** I generally draw my ideas now (some call it sketching, but mine rarely make any sense to anyone but me anyway), because it's much easier to visualise them, and it makes me feel more confident knowing exactly the way people want them to look like when I'm asked to make a cake.
