Viki Shaw was the lucky winner! Viki has very special twin girls, Summer Violet and Isabella Rose, for whom I made the rainbow cake to celebrate their first birthday 🌈
As the colours are already perfect, I will be making the cake as it is shown in the picture…..or as close as I can! Gerry Chiu is a brilliant tutor and as always, factoring in my pain coping mechanisms, I intend taking my time with it!
I’ll be back soon with more details and to show you how I got on!
I’d like to begin this post by saying a big thank you to Viki Shaw and her partner for allowing me to share their story today.
I met Viki as she was part of my children’s group of friends, we are a generation apart, but hers is a story that sadly resonates with parents of any age.
I will let Viki tell you in her own words of the journey to becoming Mummy to her two beautiful girls. It’s a narrative of great loss and grief, but also immense joy and happiness, and is testament to the resilience and strength of the human psyche.
I made the rainbow by adding Rainbow dust tylo powder to the sugarpaste and used Coloursplash in purple, pink, blue, pistachio and sunflower yellow to make some pretty pastels. These were rolled into long sausages and attached with PME piping gel to a cake board cut to size.
