Next was my daughter Annike's grade 1 teachers birthday cake. I loved making this cake as I could make whatever I fancied. The top tier (which was for the teacher) was made from chocolate butter cream sponge filled with choc buttercream icing and the "dirt" was Orea biscuit crumbs. I then covered the "cake pot" with terracotta coloured white choc fondant (I used Wilton Copper and brown to make the terracotta colour). The flowers were made from flower modelling past and wired and taped. The students all received a spider, worm or flower cupcake which they loved to bits.
Here is a close up of the flowers.
I also made a baked cheesecake and cupcakes for 1 friend's birthday (no photo's, as it wasn't fancily decorated lol) today, as well as a Cat in the hat cake which I'll show you later, once it has been picked up. So stay tuned, I'll upload the photo's later in the evening.
