I've included some pics of the royal icing flowers and a terrible photograph of my square cake. Note: fondant does not like rainy weather.....it has now rained three days straight...argh
Chocolate Mocha Truffle cake. The fondant loops did not fare too well in the damp weather and half had collasped by the time I got to class. So there is some patchwork buttercream holding the rather sparse looking bow together. Note the rumples near the base of the cake. Covering a square cake is Hard! and the corners kept stretching - good thing the appliques cover it! I also now see why a tilting turntable would be nice....hint, hintEaster lilies, morning glory, petunias and pointsettia. I would have liked to explore these more and have had to make a cake to showcase them. I'm sure I will at some point but these flowers are difficult enough to warrant a course to themselves.
Now I just have to decide what my filling for fridays cake will be!
