This is a chocolate cake made to look like a tree stump, decorated with sugar paste toadstools, acorns, stones, vines, flowers, and hand made sugar paste animal friends – a fox, bird, bunny, owl, and raccoon.
The vanilla cupcakes in brown paper cups were topped with white vanilla buttercream, and decorated with handmade sugar paste owls in yellow, pink, orange, and mint green.
Here are the finished toadstools, leaves, and flowers, made in preparation for finishing the cake decoration and dried before being put on the cake.
I loved doing this two-tiered cake with its gorgeous red, grey, light blue, and white colour scheme! Its very striking!
The bottom tier is a vanilla and chocolate marble cake, filled with chocolate buttercream, covered in light blue sugar paste with a light grey chevron pattern, and the board is decorated with sugar paste baby blocks.
The top tier is vanilla cake with a lemon buttercream, covered in white sugar paste and decorated sugar paste dots in red, light grey, and light blue.
The little baby sneakers on the cake topper are hand made, by me, in sugar paste and they have their own little board so they can be taken off the cake.
There were also chocolate cupcakes with light blue vanilla buttercream, and strawberry cheesecake cupcakes in red paper cups, with a strawberry cream cheese icing.
Promise asked for a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing, a green, yellow, and blue colour scheme with overlapping dots, baby blocks, and a pair of baby shoes.
I have been dying to try another pair of baby tekkies, thanks to a tutorial by Deborah Hwang Cakes,
and I was thrilled with the result!
