The lady I designed this cake for has taking up running marathons in the last couple of years so for her 50th birthday she wanted to celebrate it with a special cake.

The handmade running shoe (trainer) was created without any use of moulds – just sculptured from viewing a photo of her actual shoe. The shoe’s pink, grey and white colours are continued around the rest of the cake.

The ‘VW’ stands for Veteran Women running category.  Dainty flowers were arranged around the edge to frame the centre piece.

Last Summer I spotted a small but intriguing pot of gold colouring for icing and I had wanted to use it on a cake for some time.  So, with my birthday looming, I decided to treat myself and create a completely gold cake.

The flower design on the cake was inspired by a picture I saw on a birthday card. It is made up of hand cut leaves with individually piped dots around the edge.

I am extremely pleased with how vibrant and shimmering the gold colour came out as well as the even finish that it had.

Although I used this as my birthday cake it would obviously also be suitable for a Golden Wedding Anniversary.

This cake is a 7 inch triple layer sponge and with this design and the gold colouring the price would work out to be £80.

Once I had got my oil painting inspired technique perfected (see post Experimental Idea), I came up with this idea using a pallet knife to build up layers of icing to add colour and texture as a background.

I then decorated the cake with dozens of individually created flowers of varying sizes and colours which cascade over the sides and along the base. It was finished off with a Happy Birthday piped script.
