Glass Candy Lychee Cake

Birthdays are by grace of God.  I’m thankful for every birthday cake that I made.
A decorated cake with candles is a symbol closely tied to birthday.  Therefore, to me, birthday is an important day and no birthday would be complete without a cake.

It has been awhile since I made a layer cake.  I gladly volunteered to make one for my Life Group to celebrate the month of June birthday.

I started brainstorming 3 weeks ago and the idea of using glass candy to be part of the decoration on the cake was inspired by Hazel, a young lady whom I got to make friend with at the Bread Making Foundation class.  I saw her made a 2-tier cake beautifully decorated with Disney’s Frozen themed and she was using the glass candy to make the ice castle.  I was so amazed by her creativity.
This cake was well received.  It was extremely challenging to frost cake with fresh whipped cream in our hot and humid weather.  But I like fresh cream because it makes the cake “light” and refreshing with a hint of lychee. 

The cake was also infused with lychee syrup, adding rich flavor to it and ensuring that it won’t dry out.  In between the layers of cake, it was sandwiched with fresh cream and lychee.

The glass candy can look insanely difficult to make, but I tell you, it was worth a try.  It’s not difficult to make at all and looks incredibly impressive as it whips up a unique cake topper.

This is a birthday cake which specially made for Jaclyn and Chin Heng.  My wish for dear sister Jaclyn is that our God will fill her life with infinite happy moments and countless of love moments and for brother Chin Heng, I pray that he will enjoy good health and that all may go well with him.
