English Garden in a teacup - Gardens of the World Cake Collaboration

Gardens of the World is a “Chelsea Flower Show” Inspired International cake collaboration featuring 26 outstanding, award winning and celebrated cake artists from all over the world. Our common theme was “Gardens of the World”. We have created sugar art celebrating the beauty of English, French, Italian, Japanese and Spanish Gardens.

A summer meadow in a teacup served with a jammy dodger, could it be more English? This piece was inspired by my childhood memories; exploring as a kid whilst on walks and bike rides, making houses for ladybirds and the beautiful hydrangea bushes that lined my neighbour’s driveway. It’s also reminiscent of the plastic flower baskets that adorned the windowsills of my parent’s house. All of these things came together to inspire my traditional English garden in a teacup which includes roses, a peony, oxlip, daisies, primrose, hydrangeas, forget-me-nots and lavender. Oh and a ladybird, of course. The colour scheme and hand painted roses are inspired by Cath Kidston.
