A copy of a cake design found by the customer.
The weather is hot and humid and the cake is a Victoria sandwich (not the most stable platform for a heavy sugar saxophone) so I made the sax out of rice crispie treat covered in fondant to try and minimise the weight. I air brushed the sax and the cake (I know you can't really see but it's got a lovely graduated colour on the sides and a shimmer effect coming out if the sax) then I painted in the details.
Around the sides I used a mix of white modelling chocolate and fondant to create a white ribbon that would be stable enough to get on the sides of the cake, but not dry too fast.
I used an extruder to create the five horizontal lines for the sheet music that go all the way around the cake, and on top. I used the waxed paper transfer method to get the sheet music on the cake sides. Then I piped the (real) music on.
This cake was made for The Angel Food Bakery in Brighton's iconic South Lanes,
