The first cake was a small one for Jessica who was turning 6. It's a 5" dark chocolate mudcake decorated with a "Littlest Pet Shop" snail.
Jessica's mum provided me with a photo of a cake she liked which I changed slightly with the addition of the flowers. You can check out the original photo here.
I was also lucky enough to find a tutorial on making the snail topper which was very helpful. You can check out the tutorial here.
Despite the painfully humid weather (a cake decorator's worst enemy) I was happy with the final result, and from all reports, so was Jessica.
Happy Birthday Jessica!
