This is a tribute to our Irish heritage. Celtic knotwork done on fondant. The cake itself is a mashed potato cake (another nod to Ireland) from a recipe on the Taste of Home website.
Beautiful. I love the knot work design. Well done!
A gorgeous cake!
Ok,this is gorgeous and I have to know how you did this!!! Please PM me with instructions!!
I found a terrific Celtic knot clipart website and chose a design from there. I used the pin-prick method to transfer the design onto the cake. Let me tell you, my eyes were throbbing! All those pinpricks in a knotwork design are hard to keep track of! Then I used food markers to draw in the green and damp brushes to treat it like watercolor. The black lines were piped. The parchment look on the fondant was done with petal dusts. HTH.
OOOOooo I love this! I was too chicken to try a knot design...maybe next year. WTG :)
LOVE IT!! You did an awesome job!! I even love the slate tile as your cake plate - perfect 10! (and I'm 100% Irish too)
Your hard work paid off. That is a beautiful design!
