Emma 's Birthday Cake.
Just a quick update on stamping on icing. I did decided to give this a whirl on the dress of this Barbie cake I made for my son's partner Emma.
I was pleased with the way it turned out and I think Emma liked it too. The strange thing was she had no idea that I was making her a cake let alone what the theme for my cake was. So when she turned up wearing a Barbie T shirt all we could do was laugh.
The cake was a rich chocolate sponge with lots of chocolate/ cream cheese cream inside.
I tiled the cake board to give the impression of a floor and painted marbling on the tiles with a little food colouring. I used Stampin' up s grosgrain to edge the board.
After stamping the flourish image from Stampin' up's Creative elements s randomly over the icing, I stuck loads of little sugar pearls over the skirt. The whole the thing took me three days to complete. But I did bake two batches of cakes as I wasn't happy with the first batch and there was an awful lot of cleaning and sterilizing tools and stamps going on in between.
And here is the Birthday girl herself moment s after the waitress brought the cake over to our table. She really didn't want to cut the cake. Reluctantly she did.
