This cake features a hand woven wafer paper Easter bonnet- few things say Easter to me like an Easter Bonnet- it really harks back to my childhood- attending church with my family and wearing my Easter Bonnet.
I based the design on an old hat I wore as a child- I really wanted to use wafer paper as a medium and tried to master a way to manipulate it to plait it and create a basket weave effect.
It took some trial and error to create the desired effect but I am so happy with the results and I still have the hat as a centerpiece!
Hoping that some of you might be interested in how I did it, I created a step by step free picture tutorial for you: How to Make a Wafer Paper Easter Bonnet. You can download it from our blog at www.eastercakecollab.com
The cake also features gumpaste flowers and hand painted wafer paper wrap around the middle tier.
