Painting on cakes…a new departure

So, being totally honest, my first attempt at painting directly onto a 
tier of one of Charlotte Jane's wedding cakes was not great! 
It was largeand clumsy and more resembled  one of my large-scale wall 
paintings rather than the detailed watercolour paintings I 
transform into wedding stationery!

 


But not to be disheartened, I got 'back on the bike', and after a little more practising, found that the fine detail I was used to capturing on 
paper, was also possible on icing...



It was necessary to be less "William Morris" with all-over patterning anda bit more "Cath Kidston" with plenty of background space... Layering of paint as with watercolours was not really working but a similar 
technique to working with emulsion paint worked well - lots of white 
edible paint needed...

Leaves and green tendrils were added along with green ribbon to finish 
off this gorgeous three-tiered wedding cake which was due to appear at a wedding fair that very weekend!
