An Apple for Teacher cake by Dragonsanddaffodils An Apple for Teacher cake by Dragonsanddaffodils
apple for Teacher

This cake was commissioned by Squires Kitchen Magazine to celebrate World Teachers Day and World Apple Day.

It was for a "how to" article and they wanted a cake in the shape of a large apple.

So, the apple is nearly a foot accross!

As it is a relatively simple cake, I decided to base the article on how to carve cakes into a shape and cover unusual shapes.

The article will be in Cakes and Sugarcraft magazine, out in October.

This is the most awesome cake I've ever seen! It looks so smooth and just perfect. Almost a shame to eat it :)

Such a creative and lovely cake! It jumped out at me because I noticed that the three letters on the base are the same as my initials, haha.
