It has been a while since i have written and enjoyed all of your photos!
I am responisble for making my friends bridal shower cake for Aug and i wanted to do a test run. Her theme is a tea party - so i thought to make small individual cakes for each quest (~2” by ~3”) - liek you would recieve at a tea party. I would decorate each cake with buttercream (smooth) and then on the sides would be a nice lace design on each cake with a big letter “C” written nicely on the top for my girlfriends name. I was going to have 3 colors of icing all with the same flavor so there will a color charm on the table. For example one cake will be yellow, the one next to it will be pink and so on.
My question is - i would like to have the icing (buttercream) to some how incorprate “tea flavor”. Can any recommend a flavor? Right now all i see that is resonable is green tea..any ideas? I want something very subtle that does not hit you right away. I think green tea may be to much.
Thanks everyone! And when i finally make all 70 cakes (yes 70!) i will post them..
Thanks for your help!
