“The wonderful world of “Beatrix Potter” tales and the celebration of her Birthday has brought together to a sweet tribute a multitude of cake design artists from different parts of the world.
I decided to recreate one of the houses Beatrix Potter lived in and I thought that Yew Tree Farm in Conniston was ideal as it shows the tranquillity which must have allowed her imagination to fly.It is a Victoria sponge with lemon filling, covered in fondant I covered the fondant with few coats of white chocolate with extra white colouring, which I purposefully let dry a little, to give a rough texture of the whitewash and made a few cracks to give the walls an Olde Worlde feel. The tiles and stones are all individually made to give a really rustic feel to the house. The blades of grass snipped with scissors and the earth is chocolate cookie which I crumbled.
I had a lot of fun making this and I hope you like it.
