Lianne and I were talking recently about old photographs and cakes and she asked me to find these ones of a cake I made for her 6th birthday.
She wanted a Pocahontas cake and I didn't want to convert the Barbie tin again (a story for another time!) so I hired a number "6" tin and made this one.
Covered in green fondant icing to represent the forest, I added a stream, pool and waterfall of marbled blue fondant. The trees were formed into a cone shape then I cut into the sides with scissors to make them look like fir trees. I added some grey/brown marbled fondant rocks and piped buttercream to look like bubbles in the water.
The figures were from a Polly Pocket set she had and I placed them to look as if John Smith was spying on Pocahontas over the river.
Here is the birthday girl cutting the cake, can't believe she is now 22!
I must find some suitable papers and scrap this too.
Thanks for looking, it's been nice reminiscing.
