I will not participate in Scandinavian Cakeshow´s competition this year because i won last year, but i´m invited to bring a cake for table of honour, so this years project will just be a small, humble creation. -Yeah right...
This is what i´m using for decorating my cake this year - oh, almost forgot; and my best
friend, the sugargun and the 5-petal silicone flower mold. Allthough it does´nt seem much,
this will be the most detailled cake i´ve ever made. -Let´s hope it´ll look good too!
When the cakes are finished, the bottom of the top tier will show a bit (if you look),
so that´s were i started - covering the bottom of the cakes. I needed a bit more height,
so i used 2 thick layers of marzipan on both cakes.
The colours are not up for discussion, but they will look great in the end.
Sugar decorations; little red flowers - amongst the
primroses, broches, black leaves, hearts etc.
I love this first step - great design and not too hard to do.
Too bad it´ll hardly show after i´m done with it.
Starting to mess things up...
The cake is Oilily "Blue Sparkles" inspired. -And yes, it is slightly tilted.
It was loads of fun, breaking this design down to pieces and afterwards
transferring it onto a cake. Where to start, oh where to start!
So many details - and i even left out a few, afraid of overdoing the whole thing.
I hope you like it - i´m crazy about this design and how well it fits a cake!

The danish table: These are all cakes from danish cake-enthusiasts. Nice collection!
The AMAzing Carol Haycox - Doesn´t like being photografed, i told her
it comes with the fame! ;) - I could sit and stare and listen to her for
hours (i think i did) she´s such a great personality.
Someone was driving veeeeery carefully back to Denmark!
Fortunately not too much damage was done. No worries though, these dummies
have done their duty, and may have to get stripped anyway. Life is hard! :)
