Winnie The Pooh Theme | Cakes

My interest in cake making and decorating has started to grow rapidly since the last time I posted on my blog. The past couple of months have made me recognise that I would definitely LOVE to pursue this as it is very clear to me that this is what I want to do. 

I'm extremely happy that things are starting to fall into place for me. Going back half a year ago, I felt lost with no ideas of what I wanted to do with my career, having no ambition or drive, it wasn't the greatest of places to be in. I am so excited for the plans ahead with my cake making and decorating, and will be working on my skills in every way that I can to help improve them as it is something I feel strongly passionate about. 

My Nan and Auntie had a joint meal to celebrate both of their birthday's as they were so close together. I decided to make a joint birthday cake for them as it made more sense being there were only ten of us at the meal. I knew that they both love Disney and my Auntie's favourite character is Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. This lead to the idea of making a Winnie the Pooh themed birthday cake. The theme/colours of the cake were also based around their personalities (girly, cute, happy and caring). 

The cake itself was a three layer Victoria sponge with a butter cream and strawberry jam filling inside. I then covered the cake and cake board with a fondant icing that I coloured myself to try and resemble grass. The figures of Pooh, Piglet and Eeyore are made from fondant icing that I coloured and hand sculpted myself. I made the bunting from fondant, wooden skewers, and flower wire. All decoration on the cake I hand sculptured myself from fondant icing. 

I hope you liked looking through the pictures and enjoyed reading what I wrote about the cake making and decorating. If you would like to know more about it or have any questions you would like to ask then feel free to leave a comment below. :)
