I was recently asked to recreate one of my christening designs so I took the opportunity to take a few progress shots for those of you who like to know about the process behind the cake.
Here are the cakes sitting iced and ready to be decorated.
Here I am cutting sugarflower paste to look like lace.
I have now wrapped the cake in two layers of 'lace' and have added a sugar ribbon.
Now for the fun bit - the piping! Every scallop and hole was hand-piped around using a no.1 tip!!
Nearly there! The piping is finished and I have stacked them and added a name plaque and sugar bow.
With the ribbon round the board it's now complete!
And in case you didn't figure it out this cake took a lot of hours to complete but I hope you'll agree it's very pretty. (The design was an adaption of a Zoe Clark design)
