This cake is the first one of the three I made this week for my friend Sheryl for each of her grandkids: Hailey, Annie & Logan.

This cake was a surprise cake for the recipient and the grandmother, Sheryl said she wanted to be surprised too. I was commissioned to make a cake for my friend's 14 year old grand daughter and all she said was she likes pastels and wears Birkenstocks. Wow that was a challenge, so I decided to start searching for the latest trends in "Boho" designs. I decided on this dream catcher with sugar paste feathers dusted to look like watercolor. The cactus flower on top is a pretty coral color with a few more feathers to highlight the design. The cactus flower was labor intensive and took about 90 mins to completely make it, of course not including the 2 days drying time. The 25 feathers I made took 1 day drying time, but I cut them from a leaf cutter and sliced the plumes with an exacto, only took about an hour or so. The catcher was piped with chocolate ganache and the border was the turquoise buttercream.
