Orange, ivory, and gold

Two tier cake for Veronika’s 40th. Design started with a request for orange coloured icing, on either a dark chocolate mud cake or and orange almond cake, so I did both. Bottom tier was dark chocolate mud and top tier was orange-almond gluten free. Top tier is patterned with a swirl fondant mat I was given recently (thanks Cel!) and was keen to try out.  It was also airbrushed with pearl sheen for a bit of a “lift”. ”V”s around bottom tier with a combination of continuing the swirly pattern from the top tier and a play on “V”. These are piped and hand painted with gold lustre dust and rose alcohol. Board is deliberately left uncovered because I liked the gold colour with the rest of the cake. Top tier has diamante “bling” around the bottom just because. Birthday message was piped and handpainted with pearl sheen to match the top tier.
