Happy Birthday Mom!
This year, it was my resolution to decorate a cake at least once a month to develop my skill and experience. My mom’s birthday was in January, and although she lives on Guam; I wanted to celebrate her life here in Hawaii with a little cake. The colors were inspired by the acrylic plate the cake is on that I got on sale at Target. I wanted it to have a cloth-like appearance, because my mom is a seamstress. So, I designed a cake with ruffles. A peony flower is ruffly and because of its size, just one alone can make a pretty big statement. So I decided it was a good opportunity to practice making the flower for the cake. I ended up with something that looked like a hat. Go figure.
