This is my very first hand painted cake, and I am so proud. I have always wanted to hand paint but the right cake hadn’t come along until now. When my client told me they were doing a radio flyer wagon themed baby shower I felt I just kept picturing a tire swing and wooden fence. Luckily Cheryl gave me creative freedom to do what I wanted and this is what just flowed out of me. I had no idea what I was going to do until I started painting, and I just love the way it turned out. My favorite part are the little blue birds. All is hand painted except for anything red or black. I used the fondant to creative a 3d effect for those elements. Edible paint is made by mixing food color with clear alcohol and sometimes water. With that the possibilities are endless!
