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
