Here is my sugar creation for the wonderful collaboration, Sugar Myths and Fantasies. It was an amazing collab with so many incredible creations and I’m so honored to have been part of it. My fairy castle is primarily constructed on modeling.
This is the house cake I made for my good friend when she moved home. It is a little madeira cottage, with individual sugar paste grey roof slates. The walls are 'rendered' in white royal icing; the green bushes are royal icing; the flower pots are terra cotta sugar paste with yellow buttercream flowers; the garden slabs, red door and green grass are sugar paste; the white picket fence is pastillage (edible); the little stones are sprinkles; the soil (my favourite) is Cadbury's flake.
This is a double cake, the roof is chocolate sponge with vanilla frosting, and the house is vanilla sponge with strawberry jam and vanilla Swiss Meringue. The Family had ordered it for their Christmas Eve family get-together but they wanted to.
