This cake was a surprise cake which meant... I was left entirely to my own devices! I could do anything, use any colours, styles etc and that's what makes baking exciting!
The lady it was for (Julie!) is a massive Cath Kidson fan, so a Cath Kidson-themed cake was the only way forward. I also realised that not many people have created such a cake (just what I like).
Soooo, I googled a load of Cath's designs and came up with the below creation! It depicted to me what Cath is alllll about, I was considering tweeting her which the cake design, I hope she likes it!
The bottom tier is a pastel blue with white polka dots. The middle was white royal iced, and then hand-painted freehand with an assortment of edible pastes to resemble the iconic Cath Kidson print. The saucer, cup and spoon is also handmade using sugarcraft, and so are the flowers. I then brushed the edges of the petals with a ruby lustre dust for a bit more 'punch'.
