My piece was inspired by Spanish gardens. I thoroughly enjoyed every step of making this!
I knew from the start I wanted floor tiles to be one of the main features, along with water and a statue. Making flowers out of sugar is not my strongest point, but I wanted there to be a flower link somewhere. When I was doing my research I found out that when Spain’s national flower, the Red Carnation is given it represents someone saying ‘My Heart Aches for You’. These words are what you see written in Spanish on the front of my fountain.
I used a mixture of mediums to create this piece including; modelling chocolate, isomalt, piping gel and fondant. All the elements on my cake are hand painted, including all the individually hand cut tiles.

I hope you love this as much as I do!

Thanks, Amanda xxx
