Hand painted Cherry Blossoms and birdcage

This cake was hugely inspired by the work of Erin from Three Little Blackbirds (TLB Cakes). After watching her fabulous free mini class on Craftsy I went about to find a project to do. While researching cherry blossoms, I came across a fantastic handpainted cherry blossom cake by Môn Cottage Cupcakes. When I contacted Nina to rave about her stunning cake, she sent me her handpainted cherry blossom tutorial. Even though I had done my cherry blossoms at this stage, I found many more fabulous tips in it.

Thank you guys so much. I have to agree with Goreti, I am overwhelmed how supportive and approachable a lot of the ‘seasoned’ cake decorators are when you ask for advice. Never having had any formal class, I wouldn’t be where I am skills wise, if it wouldn’t be for all the Ninas, Erins, Callis, Lesleys, Mayens, Sharons etc. in this wonderful world of cake ;-)
