This amazing cake was created last week for a lovely couples 25th Wedding Anniversary party. They do a lot of walking with their dog Minty who loves to chase squirrels and this is what the bespoke cake design is based upon. This beautiful cake topper is actually sat on a cake board so it could be removed before the cake was cut and saved as a memento of their special day.

These hand-made figures are sat on a log which was based around a photograph that was supplied to me when the cake order was placed.

This is their cute little West Highland terrier called Minty which is roughly around 1½ inch wide and 1 inch high. He is eyeing up the squirrel which is even smaller than Minty and holding an acorn.

Around the actual cake a meadow was hand-painted with edible food colouring featuring daisies, butterflies, dragonflies and ladybirds surrounded by bright green grass.

When designing and creating cakes it’s best to make sure the cake decorating looks good from all angles – even behind.

The result of all this hard and enjoyable work was a cake I was very proud of and was just what the couple had in mind – and they loved it.

This kind of cake decoration could be applied to wedding cakes as well as all the other varieties of celebration cakes too.
