Paul introduces us to this beautifully quirky Poppy Wedding Cake that isn't afraid to stand out from the crowd. It's made of chocolate mud cake, covered in tasty ganache, decorated with striking edible poppies and painted with a field scene. The scene is a mixture of airbrushed stencil work and edible hand painting, which adds real wow factor.
This cake is perfect for a wedding and of course Remembrance Day. If you're feeling creative, you can replace the poppies with any field flower to suit your brief. In this tutorial you'll learn how to ganache and cover a cake, make edible decorations, create your own custom stencil, basic airbrushing, edible paint work and how to stack a cake. This cake is perfect for those looking to progress from beginner to intermediate, and would make a fantastic addition to your cake resume.

We'd love to see your take on the Poppy Wedding Cake  - so share your snaps with us on our Facebook page!
