Thank you so much, Annie, Shimi and Rozanne! Yes Annie, I did use a couple of trailing leaf pieces on the wedding cake—not from this batch but a couple I did on the day and slapped on either side of the 6” tier. It was all I had time for at the end. So the next day, it was pure therapy to take my time and pipe the patterns you see above. Used them on the test cake before photographing it, then delivering slices to my mother and a couple of friends.
Annie, I sent you a pm about the double bake-off threads this month. Maybe we can dream up a solution? Anybody else got ideas?
