I recently did a 25th anniversary cake (in my photo gallery) that was pink and white. I chose to keep the leaves ivory but lightly painted the veins green (diluted with vodka). It gave the illusion of green leaves but kept it very subtle as I felt that green leaves would be overpowering. Hope that helps!

Hi there, thank you very much for leaving your message. I had a look at your cake your work is so lovely, I will try your suggestion out tomorrow. I am actually looking for some glass cake boards have you ever come across anything like this. I have seen them on the internet but have been unable to find any for sale. Would be grateful for any help
Many thanks.

Hi there, thanks for your reply. To be honest I am not sure what I am looking for but if the flexi glass looks like glass then that would do fine. I saw them being used by some cake designers and thought they looked really different

Thank you for you compliments! I wish I could help you with the glass idea but I'm also not sure of where you would get that. I wonder if a glass cutting store could help you?
