I love love love lov LOVE Winnie the Pooh. Honey and bears...and a lazy Sunday afternoon. Sweeeet!
The cake you will see in just a bit is a three tiered cake, inspired by Classic Winnie in the Garden. As he lays on top in a field of flowers with butterflies flitting and one landing on his full little belly while he stares up at the sky contently....his honey pot awaits at the bottom.
Winnie and the honey pot was sculpted by my daughter, Theodora who in her own right is an artist.
The plaque you see on the top tier was printed on sugarpaper and adhered to the fondant backing with a bit of vodka....no....people....we kept the vodka away from Winnie!
The inside you ask? A simple chocolate and vanilla cake filled with a vanilla Italian Meringue Buttercream. We alternated the layers within each tier to create a vanilla-chocolate-vanilla-chocoalte pattern filled with the white cream. So nostalgic of a time long passed.
