Crowning glory cake

“I think there is nothing better than baking and decorating a cake  for a special person. Deciding on the flavours, the colours and the decoration is such an enjoyable process  no matter how long it takes and I’m sure you’ll agree, sometimes cakes do become a labour of love! However I hope you also agree that it’s worth every minute when you see the delight and pleasure that a special cake can bring.

My crowning glory cake to the right features in ‘ The Contemporary cake decorators bible’ and fronts the cake jewellery chapter. I love the colours on this cake and  think the piped dots really lift the cake and reflect the pearls used in the crown.  I hope the cake will inspire you to experiment and try something different to see what you can create yourself ” Lindy
