Yvonne's Bridal Shower Cake


Ok, here is her cake. The cake itself is half chocolate and half vanilla. The filling is home-made whipped cream with sliced strawberries. The cake decoration is roughly simple. (Simple in design.) If you have ever worked with fondant, you know that it is not forgiving.
I dirty iced the cake in white buttercream. Then completely iced the cake with light leaf green. The fondant wedding dress is pieced on top of the icing. (I don't like the way fondant taste, so I wanted regular icing.) After placing the wedding dress on the cake, I brushed ivory luster on the dress skirt. I added some 'lace' to the top of the dress. To help 'hide' my seams at the waist, and carry over the lines from the flowers, I added a shell border. The tiny bridal flowers are wrapped in the same ribbon I put on the bridal shower card. I added some ribbon roses to the bottom hem of the dress. In the upper left and right corners of the cake are these rhinestone clusters. You typically add them to floral arrangements to help give everything some bling. I thought how cute to add them. I finished the cake with a light sprinkle of edible glitter. Don't all girls like bling?
Well, thanks for looking. I will be posting a graduation card next. so stay tuned. I just love to recieve comments. Have a blessed day.

Love the cake!
I used to make and decorate cakes all the time, but haven’t had any reason to lately; seeing your cake makes me miss it even more.
Thanks for sharing.
