Blank canvas

Over the last couple of days I have been butter-creaming, marzipanning and finally sugar pasting the birthday cake. It's been smoothed, buffed and polished to within an inch of its life and now...TA-DA!! is my blank canvas ready for decoration:

I currently have two designs in my head. One, a Portobello inspired cake, taking a few geographical liberties, complete with some local favourites - Melt, Tom's, St Peter's Church

The other cake is more wild and extravagant with a garden theme, using a combination of painting, piped royal icing and leaves and flowers made with flower-paste.
