Judy's 50th Birthday

Do you sell this cake? Yes Name of website or online shop Parr Creek Custom Cakes and Bakery Link to website or online shop www.facebook.com/ParrCreekCustomCakes Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake This was a three tiered cake. I used a new fondant recipe that was made from gelatin and heavy cream. Very easy to work with, delicious too. Each tiered is wrapped in a gift like manner. Topped off with a bow. I added little curly swirls that were made from wrapping them around a small wooden dowel and left over night. My mistake was I didn't make them thick enough, because they broke very easily. My fondant I shined up with vodka and karo syrup. (half and half) Finished it off with some luster dust. I did however forgot that I had to travel over 10 miles of gravel road and didn't dowel it enough and one corner sort of slumped (?) I noticed it right of way. They didn't. She was surprised with the cake and her party.
