The Parthenon Reconstructed

The Parthenon Reconstructed

One of the things we love to do at Meals of Distinction is to bake and make cakes for special occasions.  We have made Prada Handbags, Funfair Carousels, Foot Ball stadiums complete with grandstands, you dream it and we make it.

Recently we were asked to make a special 21st Birthday cake and the colour scheme had to be silver and white. So we came us with a Greek theme of reconstructing the Parthenon.

Step 1 was to make (and break) the pillars and statues. These were moulded from creamy white chocolate.

 Step 2 was to layer large lemon and poppyseed cakes to form the base of the construction and then covered with a layer of pettinice icing.

Step 3 Was to bake the main cake which is a soft and delicious Red Velvet Cake

Step 4 was to cover the main cake with pettinice icing and also to work in some of the large stone effects. This was quite difficult with the weight of the pettinice and the softness of the Red Velvet cake, but it worked out just fine (phew!)

Step 5 was final assembly which was all done on the client’s site just before the party.

Step 6 was to enjoy the feast and celebration.
