We have a BBQ coming up next weekend J and T have birthdays 3 days apart (great time to do in my knee eh?!!)
Anyhoo have to get planning on cakes etc so thought I would make a start yesterday..the cakes can get made at any point but I need to get going on the decoration for them..
He always misses out on cake because it’s J’s birthday and the focus tends to go on that ..not this year. Hubby is a keen hunter and so I wanted to do something with that theme. I saw a photo on the net of this stag against the moon and so thought I would see if I could reproduce it.
Rolled out a bit of fondant and cut round a cake tin slightly smaller than the cake I’m planning then let it sit for half an hour to develop a crust then used colour gel mixed with a little vodka (the alcohol evaporates and leaves the colour behind) to paint the picture.
Now it’s stored in an air tight container until next week until I can pop it on the cake…I don’t want it to go too hard until it can go on the cake or it won’t sit on the top properly.
