Painted Cake

Lately I’ve been tied up making my biggest cake yet :O (size wise) with 4 tiers! Sooooo… I took some pictures for you all to see.IMG_2370

Stage 1 is to get the drawn flower template imprinted lightly into the icing. Then begin painting.

I painted the pink peonies first and added a line of dusty gold to finish.

Then I layered the cakes together, two buttercream (Lemon) and two royal fondant (chocolate).

Finally I arranged the flowers around the cake.

I loved painting this cake, I’ve never painted onto icing before, neither have I painted with vodka for water (the alcohol evaporated so the edible powder colouring stays on the icing). My second wedding cake ❤ that was served at a beautiful wedding for a wonderful couple.

Congratulations to Thomas and Priscilla!

    1. Thank you 🙂 I used baking paper and a blunt pencil. I traced the design onto the baking paper and positioned it on the cake, then pressing softly, drew back over the lines so they made a small indent into the icing through the paper (making sure the pencil didn’t actually touch the cake)
