A labour of love!

The seed of the idea for this cake came to me about a year ago after flicking through a fashion magazine  but it has taken me this long to get round to making it. It is very hard to paint onto dark colours so I covered the cake with black fondant, painted the flowers onto white gum paste and then cut them out. It took me ages!
And by-the-way how fabulous is my new cake stand?
I made this cake in particular for a fabulous wedding fair I shall be attending on Sunday. You can see all the fabulous vendors here. I will be doing a mini cookie painting class where you can paint your own!

Photo: What are you doing this Sunday 21st April between 10am and 4pm??...Are you getting married, planning a party or just love all things pretty? Well......pop along to the amazing Tie The Knot Wedding Carnival. Its free entry and full of loads of inspiration. See you there!
