Sugar flowers, chocolate cake and apricot filling..with old vine zinfandel wine
What was your inspiration?
I made this cake specifically for a Art Wine Chocolate Festival cake contest. I won second place, not to shabby for my very first cake contest. I had lots of fun putting this all together.
What are you most proud of?
Winning second place! I really liked my large leaves. The small ones I think I made too thick. But I am just a beginner at this stuff.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I used a different leaf stamp for the leaf veining. I suggest you look at regular stamps for a little more detailed leaf than the ones you find specifically for sugar flowers. I think I found my stamp at Joann fabrics, but it has been a long time ago so I am not sure. I am a texture type person.
