Cor Jesu

A cake to celebrate the coming Feast of All Saints. Spiced cake with cranberry filling, covered and decorated with buttercream. Details in fondant/pastillage. Stencil and bass relief details on gingerbread cookies. Aging effect with cocoa powder. Flames in poured sugar. The message in Latin reads "Heart of Jesus, Temple of Holy God." The design was based in an antique Holy Card.

Again, thanks dear @BettyA for every sweet comment you post. To be honest I tried my best, but I'm a total amateur in the arts field... I have a bachelor in Chemical Engineering... not very artistic! I ended up being a mad scientist in the kitchen!

The detail on this cake is exquisite. So beautiful! The outer decoration is my favorite. Though I love the birds a lot.

Thanks ladies for the comments... It was my first attempt on serious bass relief and cookie stenciling... It was fun but stressful.
