Wafer Dahlia and Eucalyptus

Some more fun with wafer paper. This dahlia was super quick to make, the eucalyptus a little more time-consuming! I had originally planned on making 4 eucalyptus branches but decided two was enough this time.

My daughter created a beautiful sgraffito platter during her ceramics class last year. I had never heard of the term sgraffito before she brought this beauty home but as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to transfer it onto cake!
Sgraffito is a technique where the surface layer is scratched off to reveal a contrasting colour underneath. Used in pottery and plaster walls, it can be quite intricate.
I was surprised at how quickly my sgraffito cake came together and am quite happy with the results. I have another one in the planning, a more geometric design that is very simple.
Concrete Block Cake

Concrete finish cakes are super popular at the moment. I love the variety that is out there, some with fresh flowers, some with chocolate waves, gold leaf-flecked….the list goes on.

This year I was asked to make the centrepiece cupcake by event organisers Damsel & Sprout which was then raffled off to raise funds for RSPCA ACT. Read More
