A quiet corner in the garden

Daily Top 3 - Apr 16, 2014

This cake started out because of my love for the tree featured in ‘Hillside with boy racer cars’ cake by Zoe of Zoe’s Fancy Cakes – http://cakesdecor.com/cakes/121269-hillside-with-boy-racer-cars. Mardie of Mardie Makes Cakes also used the same tree in her ‘Alice in Wonderland’ cake – http://cakesdecor.com/cakes/117285-alice-in-wonderland. I followed Zoe’s very easy YouTube tutorial and came up with this version of the tree. The only thing that I added was to brush the trunk of the tree with brown petal dust to obtain a brownish colour instead of leaving it green. I am very happy with the result.

The tree, dog, container and apples are made out of gumpaste, while for the bench I used Mexican paste.

When designing this cake I imagined a quiet corner in the garden where I would spend long hours sitting on my favourite bench under the shade of an apple tree, reading a lovely book and eating an apple once in a while, with my faithful dog always by my side.

Hope you like it!
