Cake Decorating - And A New Venture!!


Hi Everyone,

This week I have been decorating a cake for a friend I havn't seen since school. We met on a social network site and she asked me to make a cake for her partners birthday. He likes to play the guitar and his favourite artist is Neil Young. She said it is a surprise from her and her daughters! I delivered the cake today... It was nice to see her after all this time.

Here is what I came up with..
The cake is a sponge cake with butter-cream and strawberry jam... 8 inch round

I do enjoy getting the opportunity to try new cake toppers in sugar. The guitar was a fun challenge. How to do the strings??? He plays an eight string guitar... I new I wasn't fitting eight strings on, but not to worry they got there in one piece! Something I was worried about with such fine icing..Phew !! ha,ha
My friend told me one of Neil Young's well known songs is 'Harvest Moon'.. I thought music sheets with the album logo and music notes would be a good idea. The logo and music is hand painted (with a new fine paintbrush which is now my favourite thing!)
I finished the cake off with a few quirky music notes on the side.... I was working at 11.00pm at night doing the last touches... so its a good thing I had planned quirky twisty music than straight lines! ;)


NEWSFLASH... Coming Soon

I do enjoy making cake toppers in sugar, where people can keep them for a while which many people do... Although I always thought it a shame they eventually have to be eaten... and a lot of people have mentioned they would like the topper to keep forever.

SO I have been working with a new media POLYMER CLAY . Now I can create Cake Toppers for people to keep. At the moment this is in the early stages but this is something I am hoping to develop and offer for sale here on the blog or Etsy.

Where I can create Cake Toppers for sale and provide requests. This is an exciting new venture for me and I will keep you updated!

See you again soon

Oh what a good idea about the cake toppers, I used to craft in polymer clay about 10 years ago now (*eek*) & always loved using it.
Have a lovely weekend

This cake looks fabulous. I wish that I could do such perfect icing.

Good luck with your cake toppers. I think that they are a great idea. I still have the bride and groom from our wedding cake and have them displayed at home. They make me smile whenever I see them.
