Peter Rabbit & friends

We came across this wonderful cake design of Beatrix Potter's, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, when someone was curious as to if we could do it as a shower cake.  Well, we fell in LOVE with Peter Rabbit and decided that we must have a display cake for all to see.  

Elizabeth Volinski has been working on it here and there, and finally it is complete!  All of the details are done out of fondant ... right down to the little mouse, cabbages, carrots and fishing bob.

The background was airbrushed, then rubbed to create the painted affect you see.  So much fun~

So much detail in the buttons and lapel of Peter's coat
