Oriental String-Work Cake by Bobbie Noto

An awe-inspiring birthday cake

I have been blessed with a wonderful family, my husband and beautiful daughter.

Although we are small in numbers we are mighty in strength!

The past 6 months we have gone through some tough hurdles, but we, as a unit, conquered the worst!
Now that we have come through the other side, I thought it would be awesome

to celebrate my birthday and our resilience by my daughter and I each piping an Oriental String Work Cake.

I love working with my baby girl (she is actually 22).

Remember your bag position, your consistency, and pressure control are the three essentials to mastering any type of string-work.

Practice, practice, practice, and patience is the other half of mastering royal icing string-work.

I petal dusted the fondant to give an antique appearance, and dusted my roses with a bronze colour to match the cake and ribbon.
