Snail Trail

I was so excited to be asked to be involved in a book launch. Snail by Peter Williams is being published on October 1st and I was contacted to provide a themed cake for the launch party this weekend. His wife Elinor is creating a classic tea party with a strong snail theme, snail races, quizzes and every conceivable snail based food all served on beautiful vintage china with beautiful tall cake stands full of goodies. This cake was a much larger design based on a small 6″ gift cake that I made for a keen gardener in July, this one just had to be bigger and better and the final criteria was that it had to travel well all the way to Oxford!
