Birthday cake with run-out

I made this cake for my daughters birthday yesterday. She loves Strawberry Shortcake and this is Honey Pie Pony’s little friend Honey Doodle. I have use the run-out technique and Honey Doodle is made straight on the cake. First I traced the template to the cake by using a needle and marked all the lines. Then I outlined the bee with royal icing using no.2 tip. I have then flooded with royal icing thinned down with water. I painted the small details on the face with edible brown petal dust dissolved in a little clear alcohol. I attached a few sugar flowers and have used my Sugarcraft-gun to make robes to finish off the cake.

My daughter was thrilled when we took the cake with her to school:)

Happy Caking!

    That’s totally awesome. I’m reading up on the colour flow / run out technique as i’d like to give it a try and all these are so amazing. Wow!
