Hello all! I want to share another challenge cake with you. This is from the Miso Bakes Project, which I've talked about before. For September, the challenge was to use a Wilton tip #81 to decorate a cake with orange icing. The background icing color could be white or off-white and all decorating had to be done in buttercream.

I really struggled with this one for some reason! Just wasn't as inspired as in the past for other cakes. I do think it came out okay in the end, though. The cake itself is chocolate with strawberry preserves and strawberry swiss meringue buttercream filling. It is iced in vanilla swiss meringue buttercream and decorated in the same buttercream tinted orange.
