Q&A with Sonia S

Sehr asked:
Lovely design n colors! Which of Colette's class if u dont mind-a piece of cake or vintage cake modern methods?
Sonia S answered:
Hello Sehr, thank you for the compliment. I actually got inspiration from one of Colette's books, Cakes to Dream on: Master Class in Decorating. I highly recommend it!
Florabundacake asked:
I love the texture in the centre. How did you do that?
Sonia S answered:
Hi florabundacake, the middle tier is actually a 4"4" cake dummy. I used royal icing tinted pink, and with my small offset spatula, I smoothed it on and pulled the spatula out toward me every few strokes to create that textured effect. Once the icing set over night, I used gold luster diluted in vodka to randomly paint the accent.
