This is Red Velvet, Dutch Chocolate & French Vanilla Cake.......with vanilla frosting and fondant icing. The Bow, Ribbons & Numbers were made ahead of time.
What was your inspiration?
This was for my sister-in-law who was turning the big 5 0 !! She is an inspiration to all of us & at the party I was asked to say a few words......Which were "I made her a beautiful gift because that's what she is to our family, a Beautiful Gift !"
What are you most proud of?
This one was the most difficult cake to make so far..... I'm happy that it looked beautiful & the Birthday Girl was so happy with it !
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make the accesories ahead of time & make sure they dry to a hard consistancy. I used fondant, but afterwards I thought for the bow & ribbon, that possibly Gum Paste may have been a better choice. I live in an area that can be very humid, and fondant decorations do not harden as they should in the humidity.
