This was one of the not so ordinary cake for me to do but it's just upon customize by my uncle for her special wife, my auntie. I hope she likes it...I can admit I was a bad cake decorator comes to idea and so on, I always did a bad job, but hopefully the taste pulls it together. Thanks to one of my other auntie that manage to bring the cake all the way down to KL to present it to her sister's birthday.
To me bake cakes last the most is 5 days but due to the journey and weather I think it's just best to consume it straight away because of no preservatives use to prolong the life of the cake. This rich butter cake is sandwiched with slices of peaches with whipped, topped with chocolate ganache and peach syrup and the bag, its my first try to wrapped a piece of cake in rolled fondant.
Happy Birthday Auntie Jess, hope you and your family love it. Please anyone if happen to come in and visit this page do leave comment so that I can improve better. Thanks.

I think I learn alot from this time...never ever try any lemon with fondant...it's a disaster...very sorry. It doesn't reach to my sister in law in good shape, the colour fades after hours in the humidity...but she was so nice to say it was ok.
I really felt bad and uncomfortable with what happen. Just to be lucky to get the shot of some good ones before I hand it to her.
The frosting was lemon cream cheese and the cake is chocolate sponge sandwiched with the lemon cheese so it's light, comes with sweet and sour but overall the outlook makes my heart sank when I open the box.
Please if you and your friends tasted the cake leave some comment so I can further improve on it...and get ready for your big day next year.
