Hummingbirds Cake for Cake International 2014 - Gold award
I am SO pleased to share this with you. I have been building up this design for a year from seeing a photo of a hummingbird and gathering lots of photos and ideas since.
This was the first time I made the flowers which was using Alan Dunn’s tropical flowers book, didn’t have time to practice making them so it was a great personal achievement in making them first time!
The cake is hand painted with four hummingbirds around the cake. There is royal icing which was done on the second tier as brush embroidery. The very top is my favourite gold leaf to add some sparkle!
Hope your like it as much as I thoroughly enjoyed making this cake :)
