This cake gave my first opportunity to work with a photo sheet. A sheet of icing with a photo printed onto it. I didn’t print the photo – it had to be done at a cake shop as I only have a laser printer and this kind of thing requires a special food safe ink jet.
The cake was surprisingly easy to do as the sheet blended quickly onto the top of the cake which I had coated in buttercream icing. A picket fence and some grass around the edges finished the cake off nicely bringing some of the elements out as a border for the side of the cake.
Best of all, the birthday boy loved it, and the rainbow cake hidden inside!
