Cath Kidston

Today i went to Kagekompagniet´s annual cake-competition with this Cath Kidston - themed cake. Louise and i decided to create our cakes based on this theme and it was great fun! -See photo of Louise´s beautiful cake here.

The teddy is made by covering a styro-foam egg with sugarpaste for the body and a smaller one for the head. Flowers are hand-painted with edible paint.

The dogs are draught excluders:
Them, as well as the covering of the bottom tier- is marzipan. Red is easier to achieve in marzipan rather than in sugarpaste. I want one of these dogs!!

 The cake won 1. prize, so i get to get my trophy back! -From Louise! ;-)

The cake is a chili-chocolate cake with toblerone ganache and raspberry mousse.
