Planning my cakes for Hay
In the past I have made a big fruit cake for my launch but this time, since it is summer and may be quite warm, I thought I'd have something lighter.
First I thought of the decoration: pale green and yellow fondant icing representing meadows and trees and inspired by the cover. Then, since I have yellow in the decoration I thought the cake could be lemon, with lemon buttercream to 'glue' on the fondant - and I have just found an appropriate recipe on the web.
So...tomorrow I am going to make 36 lemon cupcakes with lemon buttercream icing with my book's motif on the top. If this works there will be pictures.
