  • 21 st birthday cake
  • 3/4 cup of pouring cream over a saucepan of simmering water. When the ganache had hardened, I combined three packets of Orchard White Icing that totalled 1.5kgs in weight then lifted it over the cake. Once I had smoothed the sides and used a fine skewer to pierce the air bubbles, my blank canvas was ready.
