Scrapbook Texture Flowers
This is for my darling daughter who turns 7 this week. I love to have her input on her cakes, but whenever I show her pictures of cakes, she picks everything, on every cake, to put together on hers. While that is a fun challenge for me I'm not always thrilled with how it looks all mashed together. So this year I designed her invitations and then showed her a cake sketch from that. It was simple, cute, and I was able to use new impression mats I had gotten. This is as close to scrapbooking as I will get. The flowers are all fondant/gumpaste and dusted with colors. The clouds are all same color shapes put on the covered cake, then a white pearl dusted behind the edges and a darker shade dusting the tops to give them depth. The top tier is coconut cream cake with dark chocolate ganache, and the bottom tier was red velvet.
