Giant Peony Cake


Hi Everyone

I have been taking easy and looking after Jeremy for a whole month. Glad to be back and share this "Giant Peony Cake" I made yesterday for Auntie Fang's birthday. Auntie Fang is like another mum to me and another grandma to Jeremy since I was pregnant with him. She looked after me at the very early stage of my pregnancy.


I remember seeing a similar two tiered cake at the Cakes Around Town Workshop by Greg Cleary. I wanted to enrol the workshop but my morning sickness just won't agree with me at the time. I decided to work on this technique on my own. I am happy with how it turned out especially I don't have the rose flower cutters to make the giant rose as my initially plan was.

I made the centre with 15 circle petals; then frilled each individual circle into more petal look. I could do better to arrange the peony on another cake board so she can keep it. Claire told me it's really hard to cut into this beautiful work.

I am glad that I found my interest a few years back. This is the reason I keep doing it. After all, who can resist the homemade sweets that made and decorated with love!!

Happy baking, everyone!
Beth xoxo
