Remember how I was just blogging about wanting to make awesome show stopping cakes? Well someone must have been listening because this week I got to do just that. Ok, it didn’t stop any shows but it was pretty awesome 🙂

Although he might not be everyone’s cup of tea, this week I got the honour of creating Kyle Sandiland’s 39th birthday cake. 

The actual remote is on the left. Please excuse the bad lighting!

This is my biggest cake to date, the Foxtel remote itself was approx 30in long and 10.5in wide. The board just made it out my front door and with approx 6 kg of cake, 3kg of ganache and 2kg of rolled icing, this creation was not only big but super heavy. And then add a 5am delivery on top of all that 🙂 *yawn*

For more pictures head to Today FM.

Update: due to only having 4 hours on sleep last night I’ve realised in my sleep deprived state, I forgot to thank the wonderful Michael from Today FM for the opportunity. This project was particularly exciting for me not only because it was huge, but because I am a fan of the show and it has been my driving buddy to work every morning! On a side note, in case you are wondering, all details were hand painted on 🙂

    The cake turned out fabulously. Even the hand drawn numbers turned out perfectly.

    Sharon, what can I say… Truly amazing! That’s so insane when you place the actual remote next to it. Good work girl! 😀
