Mothers' Day Cake
I made the bell at cake decorating class and then used the flowers I had made previously,together with some newer ones and bows to fill the bell shape. To make the 'lace' trim for it and also to place around the edge of the card, I piped the pieces onto a sheet of acetate. Once they were completely dry and hardened, I very carefully peeled them off and attached them with a little Royal icing, some as a lace trim for the bell and some to go around the card to finish off the edge. It will be possible to remove the cake card from the top in order to keep it before eating the cake itself. My daughter was playing with some spare icing and my cutters and she said Grandma would really like some hearts on her cake too,so that's what we did.
