Guest Cake Post…
Today we have a lovely guest post from Natasha from Nevie-Pie Cakes. Now I’m not ashamed to admit it, but Im a huge fan of Nevie-Pie. She has taken part in many of our Mr & Mrs Unique photo shoots because she always delivers with originality, creativity and just bloody great skill! She loves a good project and in the end creates these stonking cakes that deliver on wow factor and taste.
Natasha dropped me an email regarding her most recent cake and Im only too happy to share it with you.. So handing over to Natasha…
I spend a lot of my time looking a beautiful pictures on Pinterest, and one of the pins that I come back to time and time again is a wall covered in gorgeous layers of peeling vintage wallpaper. This was my inspiration for my cake.
I really wanted to create something unusual and a little different to my normal style. This is a design that could easily be changed to include different flowers and design elements. I am definitely going to be experimenting with the wallpaper look as I love the effect it gives.
I created mock wallpaper from sugar paste and then painted the design using edible food colours trying to create a faded vintage effect in various areas.
To add to the effect of different wallpapers I also included some stripes and gingham and I varied the scale of the flowers. All the decoration on the cake is edible.
Sharon from Sharon Cooper Photography (and fellow Mr & Mrs Unique supplier,) found a fabulous backdrop for the shoot which really complimented the cake and she created some really lovely images.
