I decorated a cake for Dinaz' birthday last month and brought it to work. A group of us went to her cubicle and surprised her with a cake and a rendition of Happy Birthday! She was definitely shocked.
Maileen helped me with the assembly of the raspberries and blackberries. I think it looks simple but elegant.
I had an idea to try to have some chocolate sauce on the side but it didn't work out (it got burnt in the microwave). I'll have to try it for a party I have at home.
Fruit is a wonderful way to decorate a cake and bring in some fresh flavours. Use whatever is in season and I guarantee it will be a hit. Try it on your next cake!
