This Paisley Cake is two 8 inch vanilla pound cakes stacked and coated with a lightly tinted butter cream icing.
Stacking two 8-inch cakes makes a taller, and more interesting presentation.
It was then decorated with a paisley cake design inspired by a vintage fabric. Designs from the 60s and 70s are excellent inspirations for cake design, and can be found on vintage clothing and wallpaper.
Using a more casual font, I gave this cake a more playful and up-to-date look. Allowing the design to continue onto the cake stand gives a more fluid and realistic feel.
The paisley design is a simple technique, using only two decorator bags, that gives modern, clean look.
The paisley cake was a big hit and made for an original birthday cake design.
