"This is my first attempt at hand painting a cake! It's a vegan vanilla sponge with Raspberry jam and vegan buttercream in the shape of a number 1. The painted roses were inspired by Cath Kidston. I absolutely loved making this cake and its definitely one of my favourites! "
Made this for my daughter's 1st birthday a few months ago. This was the most intricate and detailed cake I'd made at that point. It took over 20 hours but was so worth it as she only turns 1 once! It's inspired by her CoCaLo Jacana crib bedding set. I also made a matching smash cake for her.

So this is what I came up with which I was very pleased with. Thanks for the consideration. Also a few quick questions, is each cake only considered for the day it is submitted and can a cake only be submitted once? Thanks, Violet

"Film Inspiration– A Christmas Carol Marley’s at the Door” A Christmas Wish Baked by Michelle “Chef Mitchie” Curran, Las Vegas, NV USA Written By Celeste Curran-Smith The movie and scene I chose to re-create in edible medium is from the 2009 animated version of “A Christmas Carol”. As Ebenezer Scrooge returns to his home from his bleak & miserable work day he encounters his old business partner in place of his home’s door knocker.
