Spring Blossom Cake

April brought a 40th birthday and a friend in need of a cake. I made a light fruit cake covered with golden marzipan and white fondant. Inspired by the beautiful sunny day and the blossom on the trees I decided to decorate the cake with tiny pastel flowers and piped the lettering with lemon icing. This is when I realised that I really need a letter press stencil as I really struggled to keep the lettering straight and in uniform size! I must invest in one of these, it will make all the difference and hopefully make my cakes look a little more professional. But overall this was a really pretty cake.
