About this Bake

This cake was a wedding cake for a friend. Her theme was Cath Kidston/chintz with an afternoon tea vibe. The flowers on the teapot, bunting and first tier are all handpainted and this was my first attempt! I loved the battenburg cake - it added some fun!

Top tip

Use the upside down method and a bench scraper to achieve super sharp edges for buttercream and ganache! It's transformed my cakes!
