|The Beatles' Abbey Road Album cover in silhouette used as cake decoration|
Kate recently had her birthday and I thought I would show you how I decorated her cake as it is an idea you can easily adapt to any interest. Kate loves the Beatles so I thought I would use a silhouette of the Abbey Road album on the cake. I Googled an image that I could print and cut out to make a stencil. When I was icing the cake, I smoothed the icing down as much as possible so the stencil would lay flat on it and then I dusted icing sugar on top. It wasn't a perfect job, but she loved it.
You can see the image I used to decorate the cake in the photo below (I printed an extra one for Kate as I knew she would want one to keep).
Kate knows her Beatles so well that she could name John, Ringo, Paul, and George in order from memory of the album cover alone. Now that's a fan!
What's your favourite way to decorate a cake for adults (or young adults)?
