Little Birds - Art Gallery of Hamilton, AGH

What a cute little cake!  This cake was super high, the bottom tier was 8" high (double the height of a normal cake tier) to give a beautiful wide palette to paint on.  The top tier was 4" high.
The hand made sugar birds were made by Louise Howling, our sugar sculpter.
We hand painted this cake with vibrant greens and deep brown and added deep purple blossoms with even deeper centres and yellow dots in the middle to brighten the tone.
This cake was set on a burlap cloth with a slice of log as a cake stand, perfect!
