Cardinal Christmas Cake

Inspiration comes from many things, candles, books, cake magazines, Christmas ornaments, etc.  The Cake Central magazine is always good for ideas, styles, and themes from amazingly talented cakers.  This one was inspired by several Christmas themed cakes in this month's issue, hopefully I will have occasion to make a few more.
 This is a white chocolate cake with alternating swiss meringue butter cream and dark chocolate ganache fillings.  The cake is covered with fondant, airbrushed, then the hills layered on one by one and airbrushed again after each.


  1. Beautiful! Two questions did you make the cardinal out of fondant, What color did you use to airbrush? Thanks!

  2. The cardinal is fondant/gum paste mix in red, then dusted with burgundy, auburn and charcoal. The cake is airbrushed with midnight blue and black thinned down.

  3. Do you share your recipes for the cake and frostings? Thanks. BTW - Awesome job! You inspire me!
