2 tier leopard print birthday cake

Happy New Year and a very happy birthday to my big sister. 
I have been very busy in the kitchen this week, what with Christmas, my birthday 3 days later and my Sister's 3 days after that! Many cakes have been baked and eaten! 
My 8 year old niece drew me a picture of a cake and what she thought mummy would like, so I took my inspiration from her and a little help from the web of course. 
Here's to an exciting, creative and enjoyable 2014 - Cheers! xxx

Ombre Daisy Cake

Very self indulgent I know, but I decided to make myself a birthday cake this year.  It's my first attempt at an ombre cake, which simply means shaded or graduated in tone.  I used daisy cutters to cut the flower shapes and pink icing gel to tint the sugar paste.
