Of Engagements & Peggy Porschen

My sister in law recently announced her engagement and a family party was duly thrown in their honour. My mother in law asked me to make a cake, and this gave me a perfect example to make a cake from my newly acquired Peggy Porschen "Pretty Party Cakes" book. I customised the original design, which merely has the piped flowers and linework, by adding writing in the middle of the cake. It was a real shift in style for me as I generally make sugar flowers for cakes, and had not done piped flowers since catering school. I was very pleased with the result, and I think it would make a lovely wedding cake if it was stacked up.
