♕ Yes, I’m a mixed-media artist. But, I’ve always wanted to work with cakes; so, this year I decided to make my own birthday cake. Inspired by the show, Ace of Cakes, I knew crystals were just the thing to capture the lights from the candles.
This was my first time working with fondant and it was fun. I started with white fondant and dyed it pink for the scalloped top. Because I really didn’t have days to pipe the icing and create an elaborate design, I kept it simple. The cake was placed on a white cake stand.
Next time, I am thinking about doing an ‘all white cake’ with real white flowers around the base, something that screams summer white.
