This is my very first attempt at decorating a cake. It was for my sister-in-law's birthday and I wanted to do something special. It is a 4 layer french vanilla cake with alternating layers of lemon curd and raspberry. I used buttercream frosting and tinted the last layer of it Tiffany blue so as not to have the frosting solid blue. I made the bow and bracelet out of gumpaste and dusted the bow with Pearl lustre dust and the bracelet with gold. The charms on the bracelet represent various parts of her life. I colored a strip of fondant the same tiffany blue and placed it around the top so as to look like a gift box.
