In the midst of all the feasting, i managed to squeeze in some time for a cherry blossoms themed cake. The cake was ordered by a friend's colleague, who was celebrating her mom's birthday which fell on the second day of the lunar new year. So i wanted to incorporate the chinese festive feel, by using an auspicious colour, red, and used sakura flowers as the main theme.
To further add on to the "auspicious-ness" of this cake, i dusted the petals of the cherry blossoms and lettering with gold luster dust and sprinkled the entire cake gold disco dust.
the husband thought this one of the prettiest i have ever done : )
cake was a 7inch vanilla cake with strawberry filling.
