Lillies and Roses

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.

Valentines Hearts

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.

Loopy Bow

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.

Roses and Ruffles

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.
