Melissa requested this cake for her sister’s bridal shower. The color and flower inspiration came from the shower invites and an inspiration photo for the bridal bouquet.
The bride and groom requested a simple, modern black and white wedding cake for their Oct. 10 wedding. This is a 5-tier display cake covered with white fondant. The stripes are black-colored fondant. The white details are piped in royal icing. Each of the 26 fondant roses is hand made.
I got a new set of fondant cutters and was able to create these gorgeous roses for my co-worker Tami’s birthday cake. I made a total of 5 roses and grouped them together to look like a small bouquet. They topped a 3-layer 8-inch round cake with a “quilted” fondant pattern. This 3-layer 8-inch cake serves 20 people.
This weekend I used both a new cake recipe and my new square cake pans. I was pretty pleased with the results. The vanilla cake is a recipe that claimed to be very moist, and it was as advertised. This is a 1-tier, 6-inch cake, which has been torted and layered with my favorite: buttercream. I think the quilt-like technique was pretty neat too. Because this cake is only one layer, it would serve 4 to 5 people.
