    I know.. I just love to press the 'New Thread' button.

    Basically, I want to bake a birthday cake for my daughter instead of buying one. She's 5 on the 13th of April, and will be making Hannah's 1st birthday cake as well if all goes to plan in May.


    I would like this

    I'll be using ordinary sponge cake, coloured sugarpaste icing. I have a flower blossom plunger cutter doodah, and the bead things.

    How on Earth do I go about making a tiara like that?! What icing is it out of? And on the side of the cake how do I make those inprintted patterns?

    It's very pretty, i am rubbish at making cakes so i would get a silver sparkly plastic tiara and use that, then she can wear it once she has blown her candles out :D

    I'd do those imprint bits with the blunt side of a butter knife, very gently. Also, instead of making those ball things around the bottom out of icing, how about bon bons? :D

    It looks the tiara was made with a pastry cutter thingy :) But I like the plastic tiara idea, it can be worn afterwards!! :D Good luck with the cake, it takes a good few practice goes to get it right. Pics when you're done, please!

    Also, madeira cake is a bit more dense which makes covering a lot easier, I've found :)
