A chance to practice my sugar flowers. This time using gumpaste and individually wired petals for the lillies and hydrangea. The roses were left over from a previous cake. Almond rose cake with raspberry curd filling.
A little 4″ cake I made for Andrew for Valentine’s day. I really liked the effect with the hearts and the sugarpaste layers. I only wish I’d not used up old scraps for the hearts so that they would have looked cleaner – oh, well. Almond rose cake with raspberry curd filling.
This cake was a bit of a disappointment. I made it for a friend’s father’s birthday, in his team’s colours – red, black and white. I bought the red sugarpaste pre-coloured, and it was really difficult to use. It kept tearing and did not lie well. I used sugarpaste for the bow too, which was a bit of an experiment.
A cake for Andrew’s work. I got to choose how to decorate it so was able to do a design I’d been wanting to do. Vertical ruffles and roses all made out of sugarpaste. Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream filling.
