Oh wow, it’s been a while! I’m so glad to be back and am super excited about the upcoming holiday season. Are you feeling the Christmas baking itch yet?
For now, just sharing a wedding cake I made with a team of helpers, for a friend… You may have noticed I don’t do many cakes (cookies and cupcakes are more my thing), so I was happy to have the help of my cake maker friend Lori-Anne with putting the cake together, and so grateful to Maureen, the art teacher at our school, who was the artist behind the birch bark look.
For inspiration, I collected my favorite photos of birch bark cakes on Pinterest (you can see that here), which led me to this amazing birch bark stencil, a perfect base for the fondant birch which went around each cake. Maureen painted the fondant with brown food paste coloring and brown petal dust as well. If you’re interested in more details on how the cake was made, please feel free to drop me a line in the comment section below.
See you soon with some holiday sweets!
