Just finished a cake for a girl’s Sweet 16 Birthday. She is an artist, so a funky artsy style cake was the perfect theme. Her favorite color is Pink, so beautiful colors of pink Fondant and frosting were used for the details of this luscious cake! The perfect embellishments were gum paste paintbrushes, an easel (not all edible but kitchen grade), a paint board and a canvas with the birthday girl’s b-day announcement. Thank you Micheal and HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANTONIA!!
Making a cake can be so much fun, especially when it comes to design. Put your mind to it and you can fashion a cake to whatever shape you like. I love fresh flowers, especially from my garden. An inspiring thought came to me to create a basket of fresh flowers complete with a ribbon wrapped handle and a pretty bow. The flowers were made from Royal Icing and Gum paste. The bow and ribbon were also gum paste. I fashioned my handle with a Rice Krispie’s recipe. The cake, a delicious moist Pumpkin Spice Cake and an Ultimate Vanilla Buttercream Frosting completes my basket weave piped design.
