Canoe Cake

There is a really sweet story behind this lake themed cake…. For their engagement, David had surprised Felicity by proposing to her while they were on a canoe in Moraine Lake – a very stunning glacier-fed lake!

This was their cake was for their wedding – where they have since returned to the mountains to get married.

I know this may sound funny, but I especially had a really great time making the rocks! The larger rocks were made of cake, and were covered in buttercream and then in fondant. The smaller rocks were made of just fondant. After hand shaping the rocks,  rough texture was added by using an craft knife. Airbrushing really helped bring out the texture – they were first painted in a thin coat of black, then dabbed with a clean cotton dishcloth to create more texture.

Congratulations David & Felicity!
