This cake was a gift from a husband to wife for her 60th Birthday (although he was very quick to tell me that she neither acted nor looked 60). She chose a two tone buttercream rose swirl cake, with additional sugarpaste flowers and her name on the board. Julia was kind enough to post a review on my facebook page telling me it was beautiful.

This was a lovely cake to make. I was given free rein to create a cake for a lady that loved cycling and mountains. I have been doing a textile design course for a year now and decided to replicate on the cake what I might do if I were doing an applique collage. So I layered up the scenery in different coloured sugarpaste and then added a painted bicycle, and sheep, clouds, trees and flowers, all using the same basic shape. I loved it and, luckily, so did my client.
