40th birthday cake for a lady with a passion for running.
Vanilla buttercream covered chocolate fudge cake with dark chocolate buttercream filling.
The sides are piped rose swirls in orange and pink. The top I kept smooth because of the toppers.
I used the upside-down method to keep it ultra-smooth and swirled the colours to compliment the sides of the cake.
The number 40 and flowers are wired.
The running shoe is made from a Mexican paste core shape with flowerpaste details.
Happy surprise birthday party Abbi :)
