App Cake

Today is a very special day! It's my sister's and my mom's birthday =D It also happens to be the "anniversary" of the first fondant cakes I made. (Yes, they were both for my mom and sister). My first two cakes were very simple (and not all that great:P) They were a log shaped chocolate cake with some flowers on top (for mom) and a rectangle shaped cake with a fondant flat apple logo on top!

SO, this year, I decided I should redeem my self for those cakes =D

Sally (my sister) LOVES coffee! and she LOVES her iPhone! 
So I remembered this cake I tried a while ago that she loved. It's called Opera Cake.

Its 7 layers of  a coffee-lovers dream! It's made up Jaconde - which is simple an almond sponge cake - soaked in coffee syrup, coffee buttercream, ganache and  covered with a dark chocolate glaze. 

Now that the coffee part was done, I had to get some iPhone into it. 
A while ago, someone sent me a  picture of some iPhone apps cupcakes. They were gorgeous! and Sally loved them. 
So I got my fondant out and started the work!

I tried to make the apps as relevant as possible. 
Sally was born on Feb 11, at 4 o'clock. And 18 had to go someplace :P


Here are some more pictures.

I hope you liked it!!
Oh and here's my mom's cake : A Bouquet of Roses

Sally, Happy Birthday sis!! I love you so so so so much!!! You're finally 18!!!!! =D

Oh, this wasn't my original plan. My first plan was a girl playing the guitar. After I finished the girl and saw the apps I decided to go with the iPhone.

Here's a picture of the girl though:
