I received this order from Kristin last week. Her friend, Madison, was coming into town for a few days and leaving right before her birthday, so Kristin would like to order a surprise birthday cake for Madison. Kristin really likes how the Fruity Tiramisu Charlotte looks on my website, so that was the cake that she would like for Madison's birthday. She also said that she would like either a fondant ribbon around the charlotte, saying "Happy Birthday Madison", or a chocolate plaque on top saying that. She loves all the fruit and colors from the Fruity Tiramisu Charlotte, and maybe..., she said,... a few of the strawberries could be dipped in chocolate too.
So there we go....a Super Fruity and Colorful Tiramisu Charlotte! I'm still inspired by...the pigs from last design (Piggy Family Cake), so I made another Piggy Family, but with Kiwi and Grape dipped in chocolate this time. The pig daddy and mommy are Kiwi dipped in chocolate and the little pigs are grape dipped in chocolate. I also made a small twist and create some pattern on the ladyfingers around the cake. And I did use Fruit glaze for the fruit on top this time.
I didn't use a fondant ribbon but a chocolate plague on top. I think it would fit better with the design. By the way, I love this ribbon a lot! It's my Valentine gift and I haven't really has a chance to use it on my cake, so here it is.... Also, you may not see the strawberry dipped in chocolate in the picture, but they are actually hidden behind the chocolate plague..yes, eight of them. I forgot to take the picture of the back
So, here is the recipe for the Fruity Tiramisu Charlotte, if you're curious and would like to try:
And here is the recipe for making clear fruit glaze, to keep the fruit's color and flavor better:
I used pineapple juice in my fruit glaze, but you can use any other juice, just make sure that the juice color is light yellow or transparent for better effect
Oh MonokuRo Boo, one of my favorite cartoon characters! On my cake, they're actually married and have children. Such a happy ending right? Love them much! <3
