Event- Bar Mitzva
Challenge- Realistic flowers
What I love- How the flowers came out!
Usually when someone orders a Bar Mitzvah cake they are looking for the traditional tefillin or sefer torah designs,like these:
So when I got a request for a Tu Bishvat Bar Mitzvah cake with flowers I knew I would not be going for traditional. The color scheme on this cake is just beautiful. Using black, white, silver and a touch of pink I created an “Almond Flower” cake AKA a “Shkedia”.I actually stopped by an almond tree and examined its flowers up close so I could get a real feel for them. They are very delicate and have a texture like fine fabric.
So what is the secret you ask? How do I create such realistic flowers?
And finally the black lace really gives it a nice finishing touch!
