“Well, she’s had budgies since she was little, so that would be nice?” – that was my brief for this cake. Awesome.
Immediately, knew I wanted to go for a soft looking cake, vintage, but with a twist of modern ideas – like the marbling of the icing before I painted onto it. Also, I didn’t want to go sickly sweet with the bird theme, as there is lots of bird-cage cakes out there (which look great, but I wanted to be different).
The cake was a chocolate fudge sponge with chocolate buttercream – a customer favourite. It’s nice to start establishing these things and seeing what people like and re-order. It means I must be doing something right!?
I don’t want to say too much about this particular cake as I think the images say quite a bit already – but I would love to hear your thoughts about it so please do comment below. I posted a few pictures on twitter and got this great comment (made me chuckle after a very late night of cake painting!) “@icemaidencakes @lornas_cakery @cakesbybeth A cake worth ‘tweeting’ about – pun totally intended! Pretty impressive cake too.”
