Pink Peony Cake with Leo Sign

Written by Larissa Volnitskaia

***

25 servings of chocolate cake for a very elegant lady's Birthday party.

Her sister ordered a surprise cake for her and asked for something elegant and sophisticated. She also asked to include some birthday wishes and birthday girl's astrological sign - Leo.

 

 

To create this Leo medallion I used this cabinet door knob to create a mold first, but wanted the lion's expression to be softer so I played with it a bit.

To balance this quite masculine part of the cake, I thought I'd add another feminime element: brush embroidery. I thought it would also compliment the big peony and branches of willow Nicely. The willow branches are made of floral wire.

The letters are cut on Cricut and brushed with gold.
