Charming Chalkboard Cake
This quirky cake is part of a huge trend of chalkboard creations. The trend has cleverly been applied to a cake with great effect. It can easily be adapted for any occasion by changing the floral accents and the words written on its smooth surface.
This cake is a really intriguing design full of Autumnal colour. Although one of the more simplified design, it still makes a big impact. The piping on the chevrons gives a clever crochet effect and the dyed feathers add the wow factor.
Van Gogh Sunflowers
Van Gogh’s recognisable sunflower painting makes for a wonderful cake decoration and brightens up your day. For the Valeri and Christina, Van Gogh’s masterpiece is a symbol of optimism and hope. So although this cake may look complicated, using its message can become your mantra to help you through the creation of it.
