Party Cake

J's party cake:

quadruple-layered genoise sponge, brushed with sirop de canne with a teensy bit of kirsch, filled with strawberry-flavoured cream and fresh strawberries, iced with strawberry-flavoured cream and decorated with home-made sugar flowers.

Sugar Flowers

I have been desperate to have a go at piping some flowers, so on Saturday, the sunniest day of the year so far, I ended up making a big batch of Royal Icing, and experimenting in my kitchen! Bliss!

It was real fun! I thought they could come in handy for topping cupcakes, and will also be using them to decorate J's party cake this coming Wednesday.

J's bday cake

J is pony mad, and specifically asked for a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, so I had to get a pony squiggle in there too!
