The last cake of 2103 was for a friend whose birthday falls just after Christmas. I was given free rein on the design and took the opportunity to try working with edible printed sugar sheets.
The cake was a four tier vanilla Madeira cake, layered with strawberry jam and vanilla buttercream. The entire thing was covered with white fondant then cut panels of pre-printed edible sugar sheets applied. I really liked the effect, and how easy they were to work with. It would have looked even better if I’d done a more proficient job of levelling the top of the cake.
I thought the Champagne bottle shaped candles added a lovely finishing touch to this cake.
The femininity and elegance of it made me want to wear a pretty hat and a floaty dress…I enjoyed doing it so much…it really was a pleasure.
You can see how my technique had improved too…the sides of the cake were much straighter and neater than the ones from earlier in the year. A lot of improvement still to make though.
