This fairy garden cake is a milk chocolate mud cake with buttercream icing. The flowers are all made from fondant with royal icing centers. The mushrooms and figures of the fairy and pixie are fondant.
I made the butterfly using rice paper. I painted the image using food colouring paste diluted with water on one side then did the same thing on the other side. When they had dried I coated it with clear piping gel and then piped the body with royal icing.
