White Anemone Flowers

A 50th birthday cake. The brief was simple, elegant and NO recognition of the big 5-0 birthday! Yummy vanilla cake with 3 layers of SMBC flavoured with fresh homemade lemon curd. I had extra curd leftover so each layer also got an extra splodge or two on top! Covered in lemon scented ganache and fondant finished. The fantasy anemone flowers were super easy consisting of just 2 different sized 5 petal cutters, thinned and stuck together with a black ball of gumpaste in the centre and some stamens. Simple but effective. Also, this was my first time piping on a cake and poppy red on white was very nerve-racking but I am happy with the simple swiss dot result. Thanks for looking :)

Fabulous Kate! So elegant and deceptively simple. I LOVE your piping – you’re very brave! Did you have to mark it out first or did you just eyeball it? <3
