Shabby Chic, Bird House Cake

This cake was my donation to Will's School Summer Fayre to be put in the raffle...........a little sad to see it go :o( but very pleased to see people like it so much..... I had alot of compliments!


The idea behind this comes totally from I fell in love with this Ditsy Gingerbread Bird House she made and have wanted to make a bird house cake ever since, I could never manage the superb painting that she does...I'm not that clever! but placed sugar dog woods instead on this shabby chic style cake.

Neviepiecakes......your work is so inspirational! and thank you for sharing your amazing talent for us all to enjoy!


Vanilla sponge shaped and covered and put on a 10 inch cake board.
