Bake up one of these de­li­cious and pretty desserts to sur­prise mum this Mother's Day.

We are still not over how the strik­ing shade of pur­ple that is both bold and loud, can pack an ir­re­sistible punch on themed cakes as two of our own home­grown cake brands cre­atively demon­strate!

KEK& Co. is one of the pioneers when it comes to Klang Val­ley’s on­line cake brands. Although the com­pany was founded in 2015, the founders, Satira Diana and Farah Melissa, have both been in the in­dus­try for six years be­fore its in­cep­tion and were com­peti­tors in their pre­vi­ous on­line cake com­pa­nies Pearl Cakes Events and Rain­dough re­spec­tively. KEK & Co. of­fers de­li­cious cakes with de­signs that are bold and on-trend, draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from fash­ion, na­ture, in­te­rior de­sign, pop cul­ture and – in this case – the Pan­tone Colour of the Year.

Sun­set Sweet­ness

For this cake, “a beau­ti­ful sun­set with splashes of yel­low, peach and pink amidst a pur­ple sky” in­spired the cre­ation. It was cov­ered with a deep pur­ple Swiss Meringue but­ter­cream. “We tinted our but­ter­cream with pink and blue be­fore adding the pur­ple food colour­ing,” says Satira.

Us­ing The Colour

“You can in­cor­po­rate ul­travi­o­let through tinted but­ter­cream, fon­dant or even melted white choco­late,” says Satira. “This hue can be a pretty ver­sa­tile colour if you pair it with the right shades – be it neu­trals, warms or cold hues. “As it is such a strong colour, it is a good idea to keep this deep pur­ple hue as the dom­i­nant shade in your de­sign. When in doubt, try adding a touch of metal­lic.”

For added luxe, gold splat­ters were in­cor­po­rated all around the cake while pop- of- colour de­tails were kept to a min­i­mum.
