Vanilla sponge cake covered in white fondant (I had this supplied to me ready made, so a bit disappointed the board wasn't covered). I decorated with fondant-covered Rice Krispie Cruise ship, Brush Embroidery waves (thank you Carolinedoodles on Cake Central for the tutorial), Tappit lettering (embelished with piped royal icing) and a sugar paste hibiscus and tropical leaves.
What was your inspiration?
I was asked to make a birthday cake for a friend's mum. She wanted a cruise ship on the cake.
What are you most proud of?
Using Rice Krispie cake for modelling the cruise ship - first time using this.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Tether your children in the garden as 4 year olds do not like leaving their mum alone to bake!!!
