a little commission that i've been working on for a friend at work. his mother in law turns 75 this weekend and what better way than celebrating with a floral pink ombre number? the original brief was to make a chocolate cake that could kill an elephant. death by chocolate? not a bad way to go. but due to my latest ombre obsession we managed to tweak the idea into something that would tick both our boxes. a liiiiittle bit of red food colouring, raspberry jam, slatherings of chocolate buttercream, lace and a couple of pretty peonies later, and this baby was born.
