Beatrix Potter Guinea Pig Cake

I was totally floored when I was asked to submit a cake for Cake Central Magazine! This was published in Volume 4 – issue 6. I was given the theme of Cecily Parsley’s Nursery Rhymes by Beatrix Potter to use as inspiration. I loved the poems with the gardening guinea pigs the best, and I wanted to tell the story of these guys on this cake. Each tier is hand painted using food colors. All of the guinea pigs are sculpted from gumpaste and hand painted, as well as the wheel barrow, watering can, veggies, fence, flowers and greenery. When I was carrying it outside, I broke the little guy’s shovel – I was so mad at myself! But luckily I got a shot of it inside. I love the outdoor pic the best though :)
