Quilled happy birthday...

Hi all,
Birthdays!! Wish this day came twice a year!!..All the lovely wishes and beautiful gifts from family and friends just make that one day so special. And what else could be better then getting a surprise Cake!!
Yesterday  me and my group of friends threw a surprise birthday party for our beloved music teacher..With a huge handmade greeting card, gifts, a lovely chocolate cake and a song specially composed for her ...She loved every bit of the surprise.
Black Forest Cake

Top Icing
So I thought of sharing this magic recipe ...
For gluing this cake together you will need small round box, quilling strips of red, white ,light and dark brown colour, small silver beads, adhesive, quilling tool.

  • Start with quilling the different colour strips and giving them shapes.
  • cover the small round box with a white or brown sheet of paper so as to get a neat effect on the base
  • this cake needs all your imagination for the icing
  • you can give your strips the desired shapes required as per your icing design (here I have played with few basic shapes: triangle, open and closed coils.
  • use small silver beads to give the look of sugar balls
  • use your imagination to create different flavours: pineapple, chocolate truffle, praline cake...
Hope you all enjoyed being part of the Cake class....
Happy Crafting!!
