This is a cake I whipped up last minute for a photo shoot. I've been asked to participate in a local Bridal magazine with all the top vendors in the area...and I'm the only cake decorator! The cakes are covered in ivory fondant with real ivory ribbon around each tier and royal beads on the tops and bottoms of the ribbon. The "police shields" as my husband so delicately calls them - are gumpaste molded from flex molds, then painted w/ gold luster dust. I added real flowers, no gumpaste this time.
