I’d been wanting to try a tree stump cake for a while, so I was thrilled to get this request! It was fun playing with the textures to get the cut side and the bark looking just right. The colour scheme, polka-dot mushrooms and golden leaves were made to match the party invitation.
The bark was a blend of modelling chocolate and fondant. Edible paints don’t stick as well to modelling chocolate, so this made the paint bead up slightly on the sides – perfect for that rough bark!
I really enjoyed this one – WOOD you eat it?? 🙂
