So every Easter our family celebrates the Holiday and the birthdays that come with it.  But this year was a little more special as 2 of the birthdays were BIG ones.  My MIL and GMIL were turning 60 and 80 respectively so I wanted to make the cake and I wanted it to represent them, the Holiday and this particular spring which has come weeks earlier than usual.

I started with a chocolate cake torted with super rich vegan (Shhh! Nobody noticed they were eating tofu) chocolate mousse from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World.  Covered it in marshmallow fondant.  Then I Stacked and painted the cakes.  The sky was watered down food colouring and the grass was piping gel.  Then I made up a batch of modelling chocolate for the tree and then added gum paste flowers I had made ahead of time.  I piped on the names, numbers and Happy Birthday in melted chocolate.  Lastly I added the bunnies which represent the lovely mothers and their children.

I was really happy with the outcome.  I hadn't painted a cake in a while and it's one of my favourite techniques (when it works  Wink )
