Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I made this cake for a couple's Diamond Wedding Anniversary. She was married in blue and loved purple flowers. Apart from that I was asked by their daughter to surprise her with the design. I used Italian meringue buttercream and Satin Ice fondant. I also used Cake Lace for the first time. I used Vanilla Cake with a Strawberry and Champagne Luxury Jam and everyone was delighted. My only real concern was that we were going through a heat wave in the UK and we don't have air conditioning which meant the buttercream did soften, hence reason I much prefer working in either Marzipan or Chocolate Ganache.

I love the sparkle on the flowers. Is that royal icing lace that you piped yourself? It is perfect! Very beautiful.

Hi Traci, thank you for your lovely comments. The sparkle is from a Squires Kitchen dust called Fairy Sparkle. The delicate iced lace is made from Cake lace. It was the first time I used it and it was a joy to work with. X
