Wow it’s a busy period for me at the moment as I am in the middle of renovations at the Lemon Grove Cake Cottage (as I have now taken to calling my house 🙂 ). I am turning one of my rooms into a permanent work room for my cake business. It feels like I am being invaded by a small army of builders, plumbers and electricians! But no worries, it will be great when it is finished and I can’t wait. At the same time, I have been working on a number of cake designs that incorporate sugar art figurines. I thought I would share some of these with you in lieu of a recipe which I didn’t get a chance to do due to all the renovations.
I designed the highlander above for Mr LG’s birthday, which was actually a couple of months ago, but better late than never right? I like to add a touch of whimsy to my designs so you will notice the mythical and very elusive haggis ‘keeking’ around the side (apparently keeking is the Scottish version of peeking – who knew?).
Continuing with the Scottish theme, I made this next cake for the “Divine Miss C” who is celebrating her birthday this week.
So here is a special birthday shout out to the Divine Miss C: “Wish we could be there to celebrate your birthday in person, but since we can’t here is a virtual cake I designed especially for you! As you will have noticed, with your keen eye for detail, I have made the skirt from your ancient family tartan (if I got it wrong blame it on the internet).
