It's my mum's birthday today, so I decided to have a go at making her a birthday cake. It's a chocolate sponge with chocolate fudge butter cream, I made all the little blossom flowers using a plunger cutter and piped in the center of each flower and then added a few leaves. I used a pastry cone to pipe the writing with royal icing. This is the first time I have used a pipping bag and I know it's not perfect but I'm pleased with how it looks and my mum really enjoyed the cake, as you can tell from the picture!
In September, I am starting a cake decorating course with my mum and I'm looking forward to learning how to do everything properly.
