I had a lady request a Phantom of the Opera Cake. Her only instructions were to include Red black Silver and white and incorporate / make a copy of the Mask.
3 Tier chocolate mudcake with dark chocolate buttercream, white/cream pettinice, edible icing in centre of ribbon with track 3 from Phantom of the opera printed on it. Icing roses and mask, with satin black ribbon trim and silver cachous.

Wow It might be worth considering marriage just to get a theme cake or maybe I better make it a birthday cake instead.
You are doing well with your theme cakes but was it really 2009 or should it be 2010.

Lisa, it is fantastic!

I wish you had been around to make MY wedding cake. Mind you, come to think of it, you probably weren't even born then :-)

It is just stunning Lisa, is the music on the ribbon from P O T O or just ribbon you bought as is? Whatever you certainly are very imaginative person & very talented.

Absolutely amazing Lisa, a real labour of love! Thought of you when I was in Taupo last week - saw your custard squares at Replete and a couple at the next table sharing one!! Looked delicious!!

Hi Lynn,
Thank you!
What I did was found an A4 sheet of music for Phantom Of the Opera (track 3) and took a copy of it. Then I have a printer which only has edible ink (food colouring). So I printed the music onto A4 Sheets of Edible icing, then I cut the music line out in strips, glued them with sugar glue to the centre around each tier. Then I measured black satin ribbon for above and below each strip and used sugar glue onto the cake. I have seen Phanton cakes made with a few notes hand piped onto the cake and I thought it would be much more meaningful for the couple to have the actual sheet music from the show :-) (rather than just random notes)
Thanks Anne!
So pleased i have my password reset for foodlovers I have really missed being here!!!

That's a very special cake Lisa. I would have it varnished and mummified inside and not let anybody go near it with a knife. If you inject it with some of Irene's lavender tincture that might stop the inside going off - just like they did in Egyptian times.

Gail I have decided I must have some talent: I managed to burn one hand and cut my thumb right through the nail in a space of 10 minutes this morning> just not sure that type of talent will take me very far lol.

Oh Lisa, I hope your injuries arn't going to put you out of action for too long! My stomach turned over when I read what you'd done....think I'd stick to wielding the icing gun if I were you!

Take care

Oh Lisa, You excell yourself yet again. This is just lovely and I do hope the recipient was thrilled to bits.You haven't heard from me for a long time but do you remeber my Cafe Pronto in Levin?
I know the current owners do get your Delicious Custard Squares but I don't go in there at all now.

Susannah ((((hugs)))) So lovely to see you here!!! I often wonder how you are!!! Thanks for your lovely comments on the cake. I haven't been decorating since about 12 weeks pregnant. I have lost my cake making mojo :-( Maybe its because he is a boy as I hate shopping at the moment. lol I do hope you are keeping well!!!
Love and Warm Fuzzies Lisa
