Hatbox birthday cake

Daily Top 3 - Jan 12, 2015

This was made for my mums friend as a surprise. I was set the challenge of creating an open hat box cake with pink roses and flowers popping out. I was initially quite worried I wouldn’t be able to do it but I LOVED making this cake, it’s perfect.

Needless to say everyone who saw it was really impressed and my friends mum was amazed. Such a wonderful surprise. I’m so glad we decided to go for an open lid rather than a closed lid. I wouldn’t change it. Can you tell I’m proud of it?

Supplies: gumpaste fondant sugar flowers cake drum royal icing leaf cutter pearls bow floral wire & tape sugarflair gel colours sugarflair dusting color

Tools: hydrangea veiner floral wire floral tape piping bag with metal tip dresden tool pizza wheel paint brushes toothpics modelling tools
