...and you do everything possible to avoid it!! I am supposed to be decorating a wedding cake and no matter how hard I try I keep on turning to the other side of my kitchen where the scrap piles live.
I have never decorated a wedding cake before, apart from my own and that was 10 years ago and all I did was stick on some bright ribbon and some fresh gerberas on top. But I figured that with a punch or two and some moulding paste (icing to you and me) I could give it a go. I don't think I am allowed to use Glossy Accents to stick the flowers down though so will have to make a batch of Royal Icing.
When Jackie showed me a cake in this beautiful book by Peggy Porchen. I decided that I really want to do this hobby badly!! Her cakes are incredible...nothing like those WI cakes of years gone by.
This is the one that she wants but the flowers are hand made and I can't do that so we are going for plain white flowers made with a punch and coated in white pearl glittery stuff. White on White and very minimal. Thank goodness she doesn't want the cake at the top of my post!!
Happy Valentines everyone.
Love and marriage
