“Steed” cake

Short post this morning.  Just popping in to show y’all Little Bit Sweet’s latest cake.

The recipients’ last name is Steed. 🙂 Just fyi.

This one posed quite a challenge.  For one, I can’t draw.  Period.  Unless it’s in buttercream.  Then, apparently, I become an artist (although still not a very good one I’m afraid). And two, it always amazes me how things seem to work out, no matter the difficulties faced during construction of the cake.

When trying to draw on this cake, I used a cut-out of the image to be drawn and laid it on top of the cake.  This way, I could poke holes at various points throughout the image and make it a connect the dots and a “buttercream by numbers”. However, this caused the frosting to peel off the top of the cake.  Back to the drawing board.

So this design ended up being mostly free-handed work.  🙂

How it looked on the cake:

Have a great day!
