I love trying new techniques and I love using patterns on my cakes. I have seen this mosaic tile look on cakes and I was ready to try it out. And since I’m obsessed with chevron right now (check out this and this cake) I knew this cake was going to incorporate that pattern. Lucky for me, the friends that I made the cake for are also loving chevron right now. It’s probably a Pinterest thing. The party was to celebrate birth of their daughter, Julia and I was given the freedom to make a cake in any style I wanted.
I had purchased a peony cutter set a while ago and finally got the chance to make gum paste peonies! Nobody at the party believed they were made of sugar until the kids started eating them.
This was a really fun and elegant cake for a newborn! I loved playing with the mosaic fondant tile look and cant wait to use this technique again!
