Spring has arrived!
Yes, there is still a nip in the air, but I’m not letting that get in the way of my Easter merriment.
It’s been a while since I’ve had an order for a celebration cake (the most recent was last May for the lovely Ali Williams’ wedding) so I was keen to whip up something special to keep my skills honed. As with most of the ‘big’ cakes I do, I like to try out something new each time. For this cake, it was to use buttercream frosting to ice the whole cake, instead of the usual fondant. This was attempted with mixed success – not such a piece of cake, after all!
