Remember my La Patisserie cake wip? I finished the next cake.
I am really pleased with the result:
For the cake plate, I used a combination of these two greens. I used the whipped running stitch to give the cake plate a decorative edge.
I used two different pinks on this project. A light pink for the cake and a darker pink for the cake decorations:
You can really see the color difference here:
I used three strands of floss for the cake body, and six strands for the top of the cake:
I stitched all the decorations using six strands of the dark pink, then I switched back to only three strands to do the very top of the rose.
You can see here the smaller line of stitching that using just three strands gives:
All the stitching is done and I washed out the blue transfer lines:
Now I am going to start on another one!
Here are the floss colors and numbers I used for this project:
