It's been hectic as usual in the Smith house. I am still chasing my tail trying to get too many jobs done. I thought I'd let you have a glimpse of the cactus in a pot cake I made for my husband's garden themed birthday. It was going to be more of an Aloe Vera plant, but time was running out so I went for the easy option!
(Sorry for the blurry photo. ) The cactus spikes are chocolate vermicelli. The cactus is a blob of fondant icing and the mud is melted chocolate - which in retrospect wasn't a very good idea 'cos it didn't cut neatly - but it tasted good!
