Shirley 60th cake ~ plant pot details

Newer Older

Here's a close up of the flower pots, I decided as it was a nice day that it was apt to take pics of the garden cake in my garden! - it also allowed me to practice doing blurry backgrounds (my technical jargon is legendary! .... that was especially for Claire - of course I mean DoF! ) .... shame it doesn't hide the dead patch of grass in the background, I raked up the moss and then went in for a cup of tea and didn't go back out .... for over a week! - oops! ... still the birds were taking moss for nesting so I left them to it hoping they'd take the whole pile! .... they didn't, but I s'pose its hard to push a wheel-barrow when you're flying!

Apart from the fabulous sugar shell coated chocolate rocks (thanks to Cindy!) this is all fondant with cmc

    I'm so glad the chocolate candies were able to be used in a manner that I had in my mind when I bought them for you!!
    I think they look perfect!!

    It's nice to see such a close up photo of the tiny pots of flowers!! It looks like you must have used the smallest of cutters!! Did you use a cutter for the leaves too??

    I would love to learn how to take a photo with the blurry background!!
    and your technical lingo is very impressive!!
