Oscar themed birthday cake

Well, as promised, a couple of pictures of the cake I’ve made for my great-niece’s Oscar themed birthday party.  It is a rich fruit cake (from a Mary Berry recipe), covered in marzipan and sugarpaste. The Oscars are made from Mexican paste and coloured with rich gold edible dust that I mixed with confectioners glaze, enabling me to paint them and give a more intense gold colour. The clapperboard is also made from Mexican paste, which was coloured black before rolling it out and cutting the shape. The rose was made from sugar flower- paste, as were the rose leaves. The red and gold chord around the cake was bought from my  local craft and sewing shop, Sew Crafty in Maidenhead.

I thoroughly enjoyed making the cake and hope it will add to the atmosphere on the night!

HAPPY THIRTIETH BIRTHDAY TIFF!!!
