I was commissioned to create this wonderful Golden Anniversary cake for a couple celebrating 50 years of wonderful marriage. Congratulations you both.



This couple are a real inspiration and so they required a beautiful fruit cake decorated in gorgeous gold flowers to signify their 50 years together.


I really enjoyed creating these little flowers using specialist cutters and veiners and then finished these by painting them gold once they had dried.



When searching for the correct ribbon I had my gold lustre dust in my hand and the ribbon in the other as I wanted a good match (there are a few different golds – two different golds would clash and not look beautiful enough).

And then with a steady hand I piped the wording onto a pre-hardened plaque I had made. Once that was dry I used the finest brush I had to painted the piping in the same gold.
