This week I was asked to make a Baboushka cake for a 4th birthday party and boy did I have fun making it! I baked a large rectangular white mudcake which I shaped into a doll and iced with vanilla buttercream and fondant. A garret frill cutter was used for the "broderie anglaise" frill on the apron and the name was painted on with edible paste colour, background stippled white polka dots. The rest of the cake was handpainted in floral and polkadot design.
I had a pretty nerve wracking moment when the edible transfer paper didn't want to co-operate while trying to trace the name onto the apron (paste was still too soft) so instead I had to scribe the name on before hand painting in the letters. My hands were shaking so badly I had to take a tea break before resuming the painting lol
