Cath Kidston inspired cake

cath kidston cake

Today was the day for the danish cake exhibition and time to show my Cath Kidston inspired cake. When looking for inspiration to the cake I went by the gorgeous fabrics that Cath Kidston designs. I used: Roses, dots and strawberries for my cake.

The pink roses, some of my best, is made with single rose petals glued on one by one simply because I did not have a quick rose cutter that was big enough (I do now because I have just ordered one ;-))

The dots was the easy part on the cake ;-) and at the bottom of the cake I decorated with strawberries made out of modelling paste. I used the strawberry cutter set from JEM for the leaves. The small white flowers are just simple 5 petal with pink non-parelis.

But I was not the only one who came with a Cath Kidston themed cake. My cake friend Pia Marianne and I agreed on making cakes using CK as inspiration and this is what she came up with.

A true masterpiece and she so well deserved won the 1st. prize. Congratulation again my friend I just love your cake to bits :-) So as you can see two very different cakes inspired by the same source :-)

Happy Caking

    These are amazing! The unbelievable detail and time it must of taken to do the flowers and strawberries. What a beautiful cake for any party but especially a wedding. I have never photographed such a unique but very beautiful wedding cake before.

    Eve: You can eat modelling paste wich is the same as gumpaste. But it dries up hard so I would not eat it.
