A typical Melayu hantaran cake

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


I made this cake today.. just for the fun of it. Before you start complementing me on the flowers, let me confess that those are store-bought (from Bagus). I am not a flower person, I would rather spend less than RM10 to get flowers as beautiful as this one. Trying to make a spray like this would take me ages and the outcome, sad to say, will never look as nice.

But the rest of the cake is my original idea. Actually I coloured the base too yellow, that’s why la have to buat table cloth to cover up :lol: . I used two types of crimpers for the sides of the cloth and the star design. Very simple cake to make. Finish off by dusting some gold pearl dust on the lace cut-outs at the bottom of the cake.

Some tips to remember, when making fabric effect like this hantaran cake, always use 50:50 of sugarpaste and gumpaste (same qty). The gumpaste will help to give more curves and avoid cracks in your fabric design.

Thanks for looking.
