A cake for a tattooist by Dragonsanddaffodils A cake for a tattooist by Dragonsanddaffodils
I was delighted to be asked to create this!

A local tattooist came in with a sketch of the artwork he had created for his own wedding and asked if I could transpose it onto his cake.

So I freehand piped the design onto the side of the cake, and produced a sugar moth orchid to sit on top.

Nerve-wracking piping black on white, but what a fab thing to be asked to do.

beautifully done. I can never get enough of good food art.

out of curiosity, what kind of cake? My sister just had her wedding a few weeks ago and my cousin and I convinced her to do a tier in almond ... best. cake. ever.
