So, I drew up the following plan based on a rectangular cake.
Here is the end result. All frosted and decorated with fresh cream. Not quite a fan of buttercream.Front view - foot path lined with stone shaped chocolates. Small pieces of cake shaped into a cone, held in place using a toothpick, then covered with piped leaves. White fence round the sides.
Back view - with friend's last name. I added that because it was getting late and I was too tired to pipe little stars to cover the entire back! Well, that gave it a personal touch.
Many people were amazed by the cake *blush*, some thought it was part of the home decoration *blush* *blush*.
