English High Tea cake "Lorraine" with gumpaste Cup and Saucer

This is my first cake in 2014!

I started working on it, of course, last year! Lol! This is my second free hand painted cake with a handmade gumpaste cup and saucer. This time I didn’t have a real cup to “copy”, so I just used my imagination to paint the cup and saucer.

One of my friend’s asked me to make a cake for her mother-in-law’s 70th birthday which was on the 1st of January. I couldn’t say no! This was a somewhat inconvenient time of year because I also had my other friend and her son visiting us for a few days. I thought I could manage it while I also entertained my friends, showing them around and spending time with them. After everybody went to sleep at night I worked on the cake for two days until 2.30 AM and slept only 4-5 hours, because my kids are early birds!

I was very happy with the result! But I had a disaster with my “photo shoot”. I had only 10 minutes before the cake had to be picked up, so I had to make quick photos. Then I discovered that my camera battery was flat! Ops!!! So I had a few minutes to charge my camera and take whatever photos I would able to make until my camera completely “died”! I also had my favourite outside spot to take photos, but it was such a sunny day it was hard to take good photos! Anyway, I am very happy with my cake and happy that I could take a few good photos.

I hope you will like them too!

Happy New Year everyone!
