Decided something unique for my mum's birthday....apples!!! According to Chinese it has a good meaning to it. Only my apples are cakes wrapped in fondant. It was hard work shaping the apples and spraying them with edible color dye.
The tray and linen are sugar paste...including the carnations which fortunately are left-overs from my 'Lovely Lace' cake.
