I bought a new button mould from Squires Kitchen and have been desperate to use it! Fortunately I didn't have to wait long as it was someone at works birthday (not that she wanted to admit it). I liked the colours that much on the hen-do cake I made (Cath Kidston style) that I decided to use them again. The buttons are made using petal paste and dusted with edible lustre. The 'threads' were piped with royal icing.

This was a simple cake to make and I really love the buttons. I have seen some designs on the internet where ivory buttons have decorated a wedding cake iced in ivory. It is a really nice design with a vintage feel to it.

Here is the cake I made for the yellow ribbon day at our local hospice. I donated it for their raffle. It is exactly the same as the last cake I made - with the exception of it being yellow!

Cath Kidston inspired Cake

This cake was made for the weekend of my friends hen-do. It is inspired by Cath Kidston and the colours match her theme for the wedding. I enjoyed making this cake as it took a lot of effort and different skills to make. The roses were created from royal icing and were piped onto a cocktail stick. I found this difficult to do but think I got the hang of it in the end! The white 'ribbons' on the top of the cake and on the bottom were made from flower paste and were decorated with edible pearl white lustre. I was really happy with the outcome of this cake - so much so that I am going to create a white and yellow version for the local hospice 'yellow ribbon day' watch this space!
