This was for an 8 year old's birthday - they requested that I do whatever I like for the cake and just utilize her favorite colors (blue and green). This was my first attempt at a pillow cake and tiara. The square shaped pillow was a pretty run of the mill attempt...however, trying to make the round cake look like a pillow and hold a shape was far more challenging than anticipated!! Nonetheless, the 8 year old was very happy with the result and even ate the crown :)
I made this cake for a friend's beautiful daughter. I tried a new recipe for "White Chocolate Fondant". It was harder to work with and roll out but it tastes much better. Oh well, practice makes perfect (I hope)
This was a cake that I made so that I could practice with sculpting technique. All of the pieces are edible. I made the fondant for the cake from scratch and it was a bit softer than it should have been. I also realize some of the things I should have done in different order, but I will know for next time! Seriously people, I need volunteers to eat these cakes (aside from my kids).
I was taking a class in technique with gum paste and fondant - this cake was my final project! (all edible) All of the leaves and flowers were hand painted with food coloring prior to being attached to the cake.
