Nightmare bridal shower cake
This cake gave me nothing but trouble. Normally I switch to a shortening based BC during the hot weather months but for whatever reason I didnt do that with this cake. I used my normal butter based recipe and it literally melted right off the cake. Several times. I finally got the cake and icing cold enough I could ice it but I couldnt ever get it really smooth. The scrollwork is royal that I painted with silver luster dust. The dumbbells on top and the butterflies are fondant. The bride apparently can bench press more then the groom so the folks ordering the cake wanted something to hint to that fact on the cake somewhere.
