Last week was my sweet friend and colleague Karlie's birthday, and yes, you guessed it. That means another extravagant cake!
For Karlie I decided to make a Dolly Varden cake in a pretty dress. It seemed so suitable, she is a fashion designer after all.
Initially I wanted to created a cake inspired by Louis Vuittons Spring Summer 2012 collection, all pastels and pretty flowers. There were plans, sketches, pictures for inspirations and idea - oh the ideas.
Of course it turned out nothing like I had planned - But at 11pm on a Thursday night I fear creative drive wanes.
None the less, I was more than pleased with the result - and so was Karlie.
Meet Dolly -
Cover up Missy!

If there was one thing I learnt while making Miss Dolly here, it was to BUY A FLOWER COOKIE CUTTER! and save yourself some serious time. That's right, I cut each of those flowers out with a knife, by hand! Yikes that took a long time! But I think it was worth it.
Happy Wednesday dearies!
