This is a special project to me, not only because this is our 10th anniversary cake but also because I’d been looking forward to decorate a cake like this. To be honest, I don’t have many occasions where I can experiment with cake decorating… we only have 3 birthdays and 1 anniversary in a year, often times we celebrated it during our visit to Indonesia which means we had the cake from the bakery there. So moment like this is quite rare.
I’m a big big fan of butter cream decorating, it looks delicate soft and elegant to me.. well I also see many fondant decorating which are very cute and lovely but it never gives the same awe as when I see butter cream decorating.. what I mean here is when I compare them apple to apple in size and theme. But of course fondant can provide you with more possibility given its flexibility.
The hardest part was not the flowers part, it was how to get the smooth cover on the cake. There is tutorial about using Viva paper towel to smooth it which I will try next time.
I had so much fun preparing the flowers… my best friend said to me that it’s actually kind of our me time and stress relieve, since we both share about the same hobby and passion (craft and art), and she is totally right.
Happy anniversary to us.
