There are few cakes I get to make that make me squeal in delight with every added detail. This was one of those cakes from idea to delivery. My friend Cora contacted me and asked if I would make her Aunt a retirement cake. When she told me that her Aunt was most excited about working on her fairy garden during retirement, I could hardly contain my joy! A grown up fairy garden cake is way more fun to make than one for a 4 year old because I can use colors besides pink and green. I went overboard on the pictures, but since Cora didn't get to see the finished cake in person, it seemed like the right thing to do so can see it up close too.
The moss roof is a homemade sugar cookie, covered with frosting and cookie crumbs.
