They wanted it really girly and pink and she was expecting a little girl. So I made a two tier sponge cake with pink buttercream icing. The bottom tier was for the 21st, and the top for the baby shower.
The cake came out super cute and very fitting for the occasion :D Pin It Now!
OK, I have been bad with posting over Christmas, so I'll make up for it and catch you up. Since I last wrote it has been my best friends birthday. She has been my best friend for the past 9 years so she deserved a brilliant cake as a little surprise!
I bought a lovely book called Cake Chic over Christmas and all of the cakes were impossibly pretty and girly, and I couldn't decide which one to do so I chose a few and merged them. Inspired by cameo cakes I ordered a silicone mould off eBay.
So for the seriously girly cake I made a two tiered victoria sponge cake with pink raspberry buttercream. I iced it with fondant coloured with Sugarflair paste in Claret.
For the top I used a button effect. Mixing separate colour of pink, chocolate and plain in icing, I rolled the icing out and using different sized icing nozzles, cute out circles, then using a smaller one I indented an outline on the cut out to give the button look. Then I pushed a toothpick in four times for the holes, and there you go buttons.
I then went for some old school fancy piping to look like pearls inbetween the ribbons. It look ages! But happy as it looks cute! At the bottom of each tier I piped more pearls around the base so it looked a bit like a necklace. I then dusted it all with shimmer so it looked glittery! Pin It Now!
