For this cake I tried brush embroidery. I read about it in a cake book and watched a demo online. It really was pretty easy. I think that it came out nicely. In the end this cake reminded me of a piece of fabric that I had been given so I thought it was only fitting to use the fabric as a back ground for the picture. I think brush embroidery would look good in colored icing but the customer wanted black and white for a more "over the hill" type of look.
