A Very Chinese Cake

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all doing well :) At the beginning of the year, I made a gigantic list of ALL the cakes I wanted to make this year and it is going quite well! One of them included, “A VERY CHINESE CAKE”. Don’t ask me what that meant or how it looked like. I just wanted to make a very Chinese cake! A few weekends ago, my wish came true. I put together this cake for an 80th birthday celebration. I just love the red and gold combination. It included goldfishes, the Chinese character for “longevity”, the a mini sculpted version of the birthday boy, traditional peach buns and a hand-cut, hand-painted damask pattern. By the end of the night, my hands were GOLD!

Enjoy! :)
