I decided to make a cake that was inspired by her blog design! I was going to be ambitious and try to make a Fairy Bluebell to sit on the top of the cake but that was a bit ahead of me at the moment I think!
Here is the cake that I made, she likes vanilla sponge cake best so I made a vanilla sponge and topped with a smooth chocolate butter cream.
While the cake was in the oven I began making ribbon roses out of fondant icing in blues and purples to match the design of mums blog.
I also made pink butterflies and some green leaves. The pink butterflies are on the banner of mums blog so I thought they broke the colours up pretty well.
I created the recipe for the chocolate butter cream myself, it was a process of 'trial and error'. I made loads of different ones and then finally came up with one myself that I am relatively happy with.
You will need:
- 250g (around 9oz) of soft butter
- 280g (around 10oz) of icing sugar
- 55g (around 2oz) of cocoa powder
