This cake is the cake I made for myself and my mum.
My mums 60th birthday was back in January and mine is march but because of conflicting schedules and my mum lives out of town I never got to make her a cake. .. so when she said she was coming down for my birthday so I decided to make us a special cake ao we could celebrate together 🙂
The cake is chocolate with chocolate buttercream and top tier is apple spiced hazelnut cake with lemon buttercream.
The bottom tier is covered in white fondant and air brushed gold then hand painted leopard spots.
The top tier is covered in white fondant and zebra print wafer paper.
The make up and wine bottle and bow are made with fondant/gumpaste and hand painted.

This cake was for a young teenage girl who wanted a rainbow polka dot cake but also wanted it to look grown up! She showed me a picture of the rainbow cake she wanted which is the cake I’ve done as the bottom tier and I added my own ideas to the top tier to make it a bit more grown up looking. So I made a black bow on top.
