My newest customer requested an “exquisitely beautiful” cake for her mother’s 83rd birthday. I couldn’t help but oblige her! This is a 6-inch lemon cake with raspberry buttercream under the quilted fondant. The top is adorned with a gumpaste peony, rose, daisies and some butterflies. She’s also getting a dozen cupcakes that match the cake’s design. I hope both Margaret and her mother approve!
I recently completed a skills course for creating piped flowers. From lilies to peonies to roses, I’ve got quite a few new skills in the repertoire. This cake was made as the class “final.” It includes a rope border technique, a basketweave on the side, roses and leaves. As I’ll be taking it to work tomorrow, I couldn’t help but put a fun message on the top! Did you hear that co-workers? You’ll have to visit my cube for a sweet treat.
