50th Birthday Cake
This is a 9" hexagonal sponge, jam and butter cream cake I made for my friend, whose sister was about to celebrate her 50th birthday. I used a daisy rolling pin to pattern the icing around the cake board, covering the joins with flowers made from Mexican paste. I dusted over it with snowflake lustre powder to make the embossed daisy pattern stand out more. I also made the numbers for the 50 from white mexican paste, attached them to wires and covered them with white disco hologram powder. The numbers, ribbon loops, carnations, roses and gems are all in a flower pick. I piped a snail trail around the base of the cake before tying on the organza ribbon.
