My neighbor turned 100 this week! I can't even fathom living that long, the sights and changes she has seen over the years.
I made a cake for her party this week and had some crafty friends send me some birthday cards for her as well. Her are a few pictures of the cake
I got a Russian Piping Tip (10 petal rose) and wanted to try it out, they are the red and yellow flowers on the top of the cake.
I took a bit of a break from my usual soapy and crafty projects and have been spending some time in the kitchen doing some cake decorating. My neighbor is retiring and her daughter asked me to make a cake which I was very excited to do. It's chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and a sweet brandied cherry filling covered in marshmallow fondant. the flowers are hand formed with gum paste. The lace is a product called Sugar dress that is used with silicone molds to make the lace.
