Jupiter Cake, Something Unique

The Jupiter cake, created for someone who loves Jupiter. Attention to detail was key here, making the cake look as realistic as possible without using artificial colours. The moons where created to be the same scale as one another, giving it that extra realism.

Where do you start? This is going to be interesting

When we get an enquiry from a customer about a cake that is quite out of our comfort zone, we get nervous (Why are there no flowers on Jupiter! 🙂 ). In particular, we were a bit concerned that we would not achieve the look without artificial food colours.

To that end we make sure they are aware of “what we might not be able to do”.  The Planet & Space theme is a hard one, because it usually requires a heavy dose of artificial food colouring to achieve a vibrant look.  But she was more than happy with the trade-off, having her 21st Jupiter cake with “Natural” colours, nothing artificial.

Jupiters moons, Io and Europa in cake pop form, different coloured chocolate was used to create the crust

Jupiters moons, Ganymede and Callisto in cake pop form, different coloured chocolate was used to create the crust
(Jupiter 4 Galilean moons- Top: Ganymede Bottom: Calisto)

We were given a rough design based on what she wanted the cake to look like. With a little bit of searching finding images of Jupiter & the 4 main Galilean moons, we created these cake pop moons.

Moons made to scale with each other, ready to be placed on the cake
(Made to scale with each other but not with the cake itself – measured to within mm 🙂 )

Even the cake pop moons are made to realistic sizes
