Peony & Peaches Cake
This is my first ever fondant cake. It was my mum's 70th birthday. I went all over town trying to order a cake with sugar peonies and peaches....all turned me down. Desperate I went and bought myself a "Sugarcraft" book and result is this 2-tiered Peony and Peaches cake!!!
I do not have any petal cutters then...so I used cookie cutter for the bottom part of a petal and free hand cut the frill parts with scissor. For the frills I used toothpick....then used fine wires pasted on a flat surface to 'vein' my petals!!!
I managed to get silk leaves from a needlework shop.... if not I do not know what I have to resort to.
As for the peaches... looks juicy right? Its only tissue paper inside. Learned from Art Attack!
