Ivy and Flowers Cake
A jam and buttercream sponge with trailing ivy and carnations. The how-to for the carnation cake topper can be found here.
As mentioned in my last blog entry, I've been having issues with humidity in my kitchen, which also affected this cake. The sides of the cake were looking very sad and unappealing. It was my intention to add a quilted design, but the fondant was unworkable after I'd left the cake an hour.
Again, thinking on my feet, I used a extruder to add a 'vine' all around the edges and then added some random ivy leaves.
I'm rather happy with how it turned out.
