Sakura Strawberry Shortcake by Sliceofcake Sakura Strawberry Shortcake by Sliceofcake
This cake was for a chef of a Japanese restaurant so the client wanted something very "Japanese".

The trunk of the tree is made of pulled sugar. The flowers are gumpaste.

Truly beautifull!

How do you prepare the gumpaste?

I've started at the new bakery now and I've made chocolate for the first time! It was realy fun! Next time I get to do it again I will take picture and upload them.

At my shop we use Wilton Gum Tex and follow the recipe written on the can.

At home, my recipe uses gelatin.

Congrats on the new job. I look forward to seeing your work.

I've seen the same brand in one of our special english shops here in Stockholm. I bought already made fondant in pastry colours. It tasted.... realy bad and I've been thinking of making marshmallow fondant from scratch instead and see if it tastes any better.

marshmallow fondant does taste way better but for convenience I usually just stick to regular premade fondant. Mine usuall only comes in white and I mix my own colors. From experience, most people usually cut off the fondant covering before eating anyway.

Over here in Sweden we use marzipan on our cakes and many people seem to like it. I myself can't eat it since I am alergic to almonds. It's very sweet and easy to work with but I wuld prefere marshmallow fondant over marzipan.

I use mainly 3 types, fondant, marzipan and chocolate paste. Chocolate paste tastes like chocolate so it's my favorite but it's the most expensive out of the 3...

I didn't know that chocolate paste excisted. Wow... I have to try it sometime. What is it made of?

A couple of days ago I learned to do a new chocolate pastry that was rather rich of chocolatecream. Do you make any cream pastries?
