My next cake was for a friend’s daughter’s 1st birthday party. The theme was Garden Fairy, so I decorated a sheet cake with flowers, mushrooms, rocks, etc. I made the flowers, leaves and lily pads ahead of time using royal icing. I made the mushrooms the day of by baking meringue and then dusting with cocoa powder. I couldn’t believe how realistic they turned out! I baked a cupcake and 1/2 of a ball pan to make a larger mushroom which I then decorated with more flowers.
