A beautiful cake for a very special young lady! My niece Terriann! I was happy to make this cake for a milestone Birthday in her life, and as you can see from the picture Terri loves the color purple. This cake reflects all of the wonderful qualities not only I see in her but her whole family as well. Terriann has a smile that sparkles and lights up a room, she has the poise of a princess and has a great flair for fashion.
I first came up with a design and then started by making some of the sugar elements for the cake. Silver cake lace was the perfect choice for the border on the bottom tier of the cake. The silver cake lace was made using Claire Bowman Cake Lace this product is unbelievable and so much fun to work with!
I then made a tiara cake topper out of Satin Ice Gum Paste using the FMM Sugarcraft Tiara Cutter. The tiara was then covered in non toxic sparkle CK Products Disco Silver. I also embellished the tiara with Darice Rhinestones. I also used Darice Rhinestone Strips to trim the cake board and border the middle and top tier of the cake. (The rhinestones elements must be removed prior to cutting the cake they are not edible.)
Oh by the way the top tier was not edible!!!!!!! Terri wanted a three tier cake but did not need that large of a cake. So thanks to my absolute favorite place to get foam dummy cakes and cake boards www.thedummyplace.com. I was able to make a perfectly non edible top tier for my cake.
I used a technique I learned from Kara’s Couture Cakes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoCjQoVeR2E) to apply CK Products Disco Silver Luster Dust to the middle tier of the cake. Kara is an unbelievably talented Cake Artist and I mean TALENTED!
I placed a BIG purple bow between the middle and bottom tiers of cake, which by the way were REAL and yummy is say so myself!!!!!!
My blog is a work in progress in the near future I will post more on how to decorate the cake along with tutorials. In the meantime I hope you enjoyed this post and always remember Family is one of the most important if not the the most important thing in life!!!!!!
Bake some memories!
