Moroccan-inspired wedding cake for Volume 8 Issue 3 of Cake Central Magazine due out in May 2017 but not yet published. So my photos remained eligible for the magazine I held off posting them anywhere. However, as I spent soooo much time on this design (even making the table runner) and invested in professional photography, rather than wait indefinitely for it to maybe appear in a magazine that may or may not be published, here it is! Meet 'Olive'... The design process is on my blog. http://www.amandaearlcakes.com/moroccan-inspired-wedding-cake/ Beautiful photography by www.amandamanbyphotography.co.uk
I’d like to try and broaden my piping techniques so recently bought Eddie Spence’s book. I’m interested in borders and scrolls (rather than collars and run-outs) and had an impulsive little practice yesterday and this is what evolved…. I’m hoping ‘Edie’ is the right mix of traditional and contemporary! (If you choose to zoom you will see imperfections.... I was easy on myself as it was just a practice!)
