Black and Green Birthday Cake


Can you go wrong decorating a cake with naturally gorgeous fruit? No you cannot. Love the almost-neon contrasts of the glowing kiwi fruit and the mysteriously dark grapes.

Happy Birthday to Giles, and thank you for closing out the Children's Birthday Season so stylishly.

I would've never thought to put grapes around a cake. Beautiful!

Your presentation of food--of everything--is so very inspiring. Will you be sharing the cake recipe, if you haven't in a previous post?

This looks delicious!

Today is my birthday and my kiddos made me a giant cookie cake. I cannot wait to eat it tonight!

Happy birthday, Giles.
That is one of my favourite ways to decorate a cake, especially using whatever fruit is in season. The colour combination is awesome. You've done it again.

Beautiful, as always...such a natural way to add gorgeous color, yet one of the most overlooked. Great job, and happy birthday Giles!!

when I see food like this I wonder why so many people eat junk all of the time. There are too many wonderful alternatives to the everyday cake and icing.
