It’s been an exciting week as one of my best friends is about to launch her photography business. Even more exciting is the fact that today is her birthday and I was able to make her a birthday cake 🙂
Those of you on my facebook page would have already seen the sneak peak (and if you haven’t already ‘liked’ the page, feel free to do so!)
I decided to base the cake around her logo, Little Buttons Photography
Bec has been a wonderful friend of mine since we were 11, although it took her a few months to realise how awesome I was (she used to tease me for re-doing my hair all the time!). She was one of my gorgeous bridesmaids (to the left of me) and recently had a beautiful daughter, Ella.
Start by mixing your red and white fondant with some tylo/tylose powder so that it will harden and then begin by rolling the red into a ball and moulding it into a bird shape.
Roll out some white fondant and cut out an oval shape before attaching it to your bird.
In keeping with Bec’s logo, I then got out my edible market and drew red polka dots on one bird and stripes on the other. You can clearly see that I did not take my time with this as the stripes are a bit all over the place (it was getting late…)
Once I had decorated my cake, I inserted the matchstick into the bird and stuck it onto the top tier of the cake.
