Today and we celebrated my friend at works birthday over breakfast and what is the best thing to eat for breakfast? CAKE!
My current favourite book or books I should say are by Zoe Clark who is the founder of The Cake Parlour. I think she is a genius and I love her feminine, not fussy and simply fantastic cakes designs. I find her very inspirational and hope that one day I reach her level of cake decorating talent. You may wonder why I am telling you this.. well it is because she was my inspiration for the cake I made for my friend Tracy. My aim was to make a very simple, non fussy, feminine cake and I am very happy with the final result!
The pictures at John Lewis café and it just so happened Tracy's tea came in a matching teapot!
This cake gave me a chance to practice a little with royal icing which is something I really want to master the art of but the only way to do this is practice!
Here are a couple more pictures:
Happy baking everyone :o)
