Art Deco cake & 90th birthday cake
The inspiration for this cake came from a mug, I don't know who the original artist is as there were no details, but I've recreated it on a cake. This cake was commissioned by my mum for my aunt who happens to love art deco and was thrilled with this cake.
The whole cake was iced in black sugarpaste, then I rolled out a white piece of sugarpaste to the same size as the cake to paint the picture on. Once painted I then cut round the painting and transferred it onto the cake.
I finished it off with some piped icing beads around the base of the cake in the same colour as her dress.
Here's a nintieth birthday cake we did at the weekend. The nine is vanilla sponge with jam and buttercream and the zero is chocolate sponge with chocolate buttercream. It's decorated with purple flowers made out of sugarpaste and has piped beads round the base of the numbers and satin ribbon.
We were asked to add something to stick some candles on the board, so in keeping with the design of the cake, made more flowers with extra sugarpaste underneath so they could stick the candles into those. Good job they didn't want to put 90 candles on the cake, we would've needed a sllightly bigger board!
