Hand painted Cherry Blossoms and Birdcage By splendorcakes This cake was hugely inspired by the work of Erin from Three Little Blackbirds (TLB Cakes). After watching her fabulous free mini class on Craftsy I went about to find a project to do. While researching cherry blossoms I came across a fantastic handpainted cherry blossom cake by Môn Cottage Cupcakes. When I contacted Nina to rave about her stunning cake, she sent me her handpainted cherry blossom tutorial. Even though I had done my cherry blossoms at this stage, I found many more fabulous tips in it.

Harley Davidson cake By sallybratt This is a mix of 3D and 2D. The front part of the bike is a sugar sculpture but from the gas tank back it’s painted on the cake, as is the scenery. I was a bit worried about doing this cake as I don’t like doing vehicles but I’m really happy with how it turned out.The additional photo is just a closer look at the bike.
