Well I had my cake decorating "hat" on yesterday and today! The cake was originally just going to be for Greg, but although his wife had a cake earlier this year, they are having a joint 60th Birthday party on Saturday and he wanted her name included on the cake. Oh heck - fish and flowers! I was then beginning to wish I hadn't volunteered to do this for my pal, who was not up to doing it herself. Confess I did cheat when I went to buy all the bits for the cake, and bought a ready-made rose. (this was originally white with the coloured leaves, so I coloured the rose to match the scheme I was thinking of.) I painted the fish on very thin flowerpaste. The cake is vanilla sponge.
You may recall that I made this card earlier for my pal to give to her nephew, which was the inspiration for the cake.
