Day Twenty-two - Thunder & Consolation cake
Not to be boastful but this was actually harder to do than it looks, you have to outline the design with icing on parchment paper, let it dry, fill it in with a flood icing, let that dry for a week and then Very Carefully peel off and attach to the cake. With the number of white line joins going on in this it was essential to make sure they all joined up perfectly or the red icing would escape.
Trivia: The cake is cocoa-stout flavoured, the buttercream is vanilla and the top design actually tastes of raspberries strangely.
