Piano Cake

lj, piano
Posted on 12/15/2009 by vysanthe
It was my 19th birthday a few weeks ago. I have always wanted a piano shaped cake so.. it happened this year!





Mum made the base, which was sponge with bailey's custard, maltesers and cherry ripe. I coated it in ganache, and did all the chocolate decorations. The head chef got a little carried away and piped some caramel on there too :D





Thanks for looking :D

It's so lovely and adorable!
When I think of "piano cake" I think of that monstrosity on ace of cakes, this looks 10x more edible and fantastic.

Ooh, thanks for the link! I've never heard of those before. My baking just got a lot more fun. :)

Haha you're welcome! The first time I heard of them I was stunned, plus there are so many different patterns!
vysanthe 16th-Dec-2009 01:32 am (UTC)
That'd be right. I work in a professional pastry kitchen so yeah :D
gemcitytiffany 15th-Dec-2009 10:22 pm (UTC)
Is it bad that I REEEEAAALLLY want to see this sliced open? :D

I love it.
thefalsk 15th-Dec-2009 11:31 pm (UTC)
I do, too!

How big is this thing? I thought it was a teeny piece of chocolate at first.

Unreal. Very cool!
vysanthe 16th-Dec-2009 12:39 pm (UTC)
ummm about a4 page sized? :) Could feed about 20 people!

*flails* BEAUTIFUL

That is the coolest thing I've ever seen. As a gal with a music degree who loves to sing (and plays a little, teeny bit of piano and some violin), I totally want one! (But I am simply not ambitious enough to do it for myself. *chuckles*)

So pretty. I especially love the detail of the sheet music.

Happy Birthday!
vysanthe 16th-Dec-2009 12:41 pm (UTC)
Aww, fantastic. I haven't played piano much lately.. *sighs* I'd like a cello cake sometime too? haha. Chocolate transfer sheets with sheet music on them!! <3
memorysong 15th-Dec-2009 11:27 pm (UTC)

Chocolate transfer sheets are like my favorite thing ever! This is so elegant! Happy Belated Birthday!
hippopie 16th-Dec-2009 02:48 am (UTC)
that look fantastic, I love how the outside it all chocolate. Chocolate rather than fondant makes it much more amazing and much more edible! Yum!
vysanthe 16th-Dec-2009 12:42 pm (UTC)
Fondant tastes grosss x_x I put macarons on it, I figured lolitas appreciate macarons, hahaaaa.

That is super beautiful *-* I really like the gold brushed on the chocolate making it feel more like wood grain and the tiny flowers and notes are a super cute touch ^__^
