Scottish family cake
This was a very important cake for me.
It was for my mums 50th and as iv only been caking since may, this was the first year iv made her a cake.
My mum is also a caker and the one who introduced me into caking and if it wasnt for her i wouldnt be making cakes now, so really wanted to make her proud.
I wanted to make it as personal as possible and try to make it to tell her story.
For the bottom tier i printed off 6 family photos and put them in individual frames.(unfortuantly icing sheets didnt like me that night so i had to use rice paper).lol
For the top tier i decided to use my mums family tartan and for the first time i used fresh flowers, thistles and roses. I would have liked to have used heather too but unfortunatly i couldnt get any at such short notice, so i had to go with something else (dont know the name of it) lol.
The end result was better than i could have imagined and my mum loved it! :)
