Pink Polka Dot Lemon Cake

Here the decorations are from sugar paste, white rolled out in one piece, leaves, bird and branches made using a mould. Next time I will definitely continue polka dot theme in decorations here I was just so eager to try out the new fondant mould.

Every piece is unique with dots for each plate, cake is moist and taste fresh.
