This cake was made for a teenage girl called Petroula. Petroula plays the piano so she asked for a cake to remind her of her favorite instrument, but she did not want the usual piano shape. So I came up with this idea. She really liked it a lot, actually she was very excited with her cake.
It took me approximately 2½ hours to decorate it. It weighted about 6kg and both cakes were covered twice with fondant. The piano keys were all measured and cut on the same size and they were attached to the 1st fondant layer with a touch of water.
The letters and music notes were made with vegetable fresh cream. I find that this kind of cream always stands better on fondant but I never use it alone on cakes. Icing sugar and fresh cream is also added to the vegetable cream.
