This is a 10" sponge cake with raspberry jam and Swiss meringue butter cream. I was asked for a white cake with yellow piping and yellow roses. I chose to also use gold in the colour scheme, using ivory ribbon with gold edging for the posy pick, a gold 80 sign ,gold wired pearls and gold dusted hearts around the sides where the swags joined. There are quite a few shades of yellow, but I tried to restrict myself to two shades only. I attached a thin yellow ribbon around the cake just above the piped trail and then matched it with a wider ribbon to edge the drum board. I piped the sign onto an icing plaque which I had embossed using a daisy rolling pin, then used the same Royal yellow icing for the piped trail and the three dots dropping down from each gold heart. I supplied two sparklers in the numbers 8 and 0 which they lit as everyone sang Happy Birthday and the cake was brought in. I have been told it went very well and the sparklers were a great success.
