Regulars to this section might remember the fish pond cake I made for my grandad a few months ago, well this is my next cake attempt. I made an extra effort because I'm off to university in October and don't know how many more family birthday cakes I will get to make.

It is a copy of the vegetable section in our garden, it is fairly accurate, scale and type of plantwize.



I made this for my dads birthday, but we are going on holiday tomorrow so we don't have time to eat a full size one, so I made it super tiny. This is the cake with an ordinary sized lemon to show scale.



The painting one the side of the green house, there is cake in the green house. We are going to take it away with us to use on my dads actually birthday.



There are LOADS MORE photos, and info on the different sections on my Blog (see signature).
Please comment/critisise here or on my blog, I find feedback really helpfull!

WOW!!! This is so cool! I thought it was awesome when I thought it was a "regular" sized cake but then I saw how small it is... I'm totally amazed by the detail.
