We’re so excited and honoured to kick-start the new year with our afternoon tea bunny rabbit cake gracing the Spring 2015 cover of Cake Decoration Heaven – by far one of our very favourite cake decorating and baking related magazines! We created this cake back in November of 2014 amidst a rather hectic work schedule full of festive designs from Christmas tree cookies to Frozen themed birthday cakes. A pretty spring inspired birthday cake was a little break for us despite our extreme love of everything winter-related.
Cake Decoration Heaven is a fantastic magazine to pick up if your any level of cake designer. It’s full of ideas, projects and tutorials, industry news and it’s one of the most on-trend cake design magazines we’ve had the fortune to read. To purchase an e-copy or e-subscription make your way to Apple’s AppStore or GooglePlay and search ‘Cake Decoration Heaven’.
Our tea themed design took a lot of inspiration from the frivolities of spring and Easter. For us this meant lovely pastel macarons toppled and scattered around, delicately piped clusters of royal icing swiss dots, a light and airy colour palette, afternoon tea paraphernalia and of course… a playful little rabbit!
Creating gum paste edible teacups is, of course, one of our favourite decorations to make. It involves a little bit of waiting about and a very steady hand, but the end result is always nice to see. In the initial designs (which involves a teacup perched on a pink cake strewn with sugar blossoms, berries and macarons) we felt that it needed something that would make the cake appeal to both adults and kids so a little edible character seemed the most logical solution.
