Earlier this year I decided to try my hand at a collaboration. The theme was Woodland Fairies and I was immediately excited. I knew my design had to involve bark and moss. I mean, isn't that a must for a woodlands themed cake? I devised a plan and got to work. I pulled some non-cake inspiration from Pinterest and decided on a soft, pale color scheme. I really challenged myself by attempting to make sugar flowers. I learned a few important lessons. One...creating flowers can be very therapeutic. Second...always make more than you think you'll need. It can take a bunch to fill up an area.
The moss was made using desiccated coconut and gel food coloring. The fairy lights were done using LED lights and gelatin. The final product was a stunning romantic, mossy, woodland fairies creation.
