Hearts & ribbons!

The Valentines "bug" has bitten me well & truly...I've got a workbench full of tiny red hearts & roses...God knows how many cakes I'm going to have to make to use them all up!
This one is a "Valentine Table Cake"...for some reason I found myself draping the fondant icing into folds at the corners of the cakes like a tablecloth. If I've ever seen a cake like this, Valentine or not, then I have no idea where it could have been..this was simply one of those pieces that just "evolved"! Different it certainly is!!



Back to all those hearts & roses now. :-))

ooh Linda, this is definitely something I've never seen before, in miniature or in real life! :) It's beautiful!

I'll keep a lookout for you, if I spot any copycats out there (still fuming over your CDHM story hehh).

Thanks Jocelyn....as for copycats, Pat's advice to dip chocolate in bourbon is a great way to deal with them!! LOL
