Thought I would share a few cake bakes I have made recently with you. The flower cake as you can see was for a 70th birthday celebration, made using a vanilla sponge cake filled with vanilla buttercream and strawberry jam. For the recipe I used my standard fairy cake recipe, only a four egg and eight ounce mixture for this large cake. The flowers are made with petal paste using large blossom cutters and finished with a sugar paste button made using my button mould. If your skill is not piping, then keep it simple as I have. I did get a little carried away with the pearlised cake decorating spray.
Following the success of the Sweetie Birthday Cake back in July I made another for a family friends birthday. The cake hidden under all those sweeties is a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and damson jelly, topped with Haribo sweets and chocolate fingers.
