I was asked to do a burlap shower cake. This was the first time I had been asked/heard of putting burlap on a cake. I honestly wasn’t sure it was possible! Burlap seems dirty (as it makes me think of potato bags) and something that should be no where near a cake! I told her I would have to look into it, before I totally committed.
I was quite surprised how many people do this! I had no idea. There were a lot of people fore and against it, a with anything. But after reading some excellent tips and what kind to use, this is what I came up with.
She like it. I received a lot of excellent feedback, everyone loved the look. Not sure I would want to eat it though… it sheds, frays etc. It may look pretty, but I really wouldn’t recommend it.
