|Turquoise snowflake cake|
This is the second of the three Christmas cakes I have made this year for the family. This time a sugarpaste coated one. I was very disappointed in the sugarpaste - I decided to try some new stuff this year that Mich Turner of the Little Venice Cake Company had put her name to. I should have realised that as it was made by Silver Spoon it would be rubbish! It was horrendous to handle and took a couple of attempts to get it on the cake. Haven't had that problem since I first started cake decorating many many many moons ago! Still we live and learn! Not only that but the packet said "White" - erm as you can see in the photo it is ivory! At least the blue dusted white snowflakes show up on it!
I made the top knot from turquoise and white pearl seed beads. Slight panic when I discovered the ribbons I had weren't quite the right colour that I wanted, but solved the problem by putting a green ribbon under the blue one to get the required turquoise colour! It now matches my daughter's dining room decor perfectly.
Look out for tomorrow's posting - third and last cake - mine!
Thanks for dropping by.
