This was a big cake, 12" x 18" with buttercream filling and frosting. Eva is my daughter's friends little girl and she's crazy for these two little characters. The palm trees and lettering are gumpaste and Mickey and Minnie are in colourflow. I've been decorating for heaven knows how many years and have never mastered those pokey parchment bags that you fold up yourself. Well, with all those colours in the colourflow section, I made myself work at folding until I got it to work.
Eva has had two other cakes from me. The first was when she was adopted to her wonderful new Mum and Dad. I think this was a 12" x 18" too, fondant with colourflow lettering. The Chinese characters represent her name "Eva" in Chinese. The bottom corner has a large peony and sprigs of cherry blossom and a baby in the middle of the flower.
For her second birthday (her first birthday in Canada) I gave her a bunch of playful monkeys with balloons. The balloons were made with bent floral wire with a coloured mixture of gelatin.
