For her ‘Sweet 16’ my daughter Alessia wanted something grand to reflect this important milestone in her life. So we put our heads together and came up with this design which is much more grown up than her previous birthday cakes.
The box pleat frill on the bottom tier was actually designed for another cake that I will be doing for Valentine’s Day, but both Alessia and I liked the sample I did so much, that we decided to use it also for her birthday cake.
For the scalloped brush embroidery design I once again took inspiration from the Black and White Wedding Cake by the brilliant Zoe of Zoe’s Fancy Cakes – https://cakesdecor.com/cakes/158173-black-and-white-wedding-cake
Alessia is delighted with her cake which in turn make her mum very happy indeed!!!! Hope you like it too!!
