It’s really nice to just make a PRETTY cake every now and again. I started my cake career making gumpaste flowers and cake decor. As the cake trends moved away from that and more towards characters and the leaning towers of confections you see on television, the classic beauty of floral sugar craft is often overlooked.
This is a Nutella filled cake, covered in fondant and decorated in gumpaste flowers and butterflies. Despite the ridiculous humidity we’ve suffered this summer, it held up surprisingly well! And I was so happy to break out my old floral tools!
