Wedding Shower Cake

If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in three days, here’s why:

shower cake

I had a wedding shower to go to for one of my friends yesterday afternoon, and her sister had asked me to bring the cake.  She asked me early last week, and it took me until Thursday to decide on how I wanted to decorate it.  Once I finally decided on a design, I made the cake layers on Friday, and Saturday I did all the decorating.  It was fun!  I’ve never made a bow out of fondant before, and I really wanted to try it because I think they look so adorable.  I made the green daises out of fondant too, and I covered the cake in vanilla buttercream frosting.  Underneath is a three-layer chocolate cake, with buttercream frosting in between each layer.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of that, but it looked – and tasted – so good.

Congratulations to the bride-to-be!

    beautiful cake. Hey, Ava’s birthday is saturday and I’m really un-skilled in the cake department as far as decorating goes. Any ideas on something that looks pretty but, I can actually pull off?

    Hello Shelly!

    For this cake, I used Wilton fondant. If I have to cover the cake though, I prefer to make the fondant myself since a lot of people don’t like the taste of Wilton’s.

    Love your site by the way! I’ve added it to my reading list. :-)
