This cake is for a little girl celebrating her 1st birthday this weekend. I have previously made a Mickey cake for the little girl’s brother and their mummy gave me a free rein with the design. I lleft the cake overnight once I had covered it in fondant and sat trying to cover it with a purple lustre this morning, but the effect was streaky and the more I applied the worse it got. In the end I spray painted it and the result was much better. I have never experienced this before and my bauble cakes always cover beautifully. I can only assume that the fondant was too dry to take the lustre!
