I was asked to make grand cake for a sweet 16 birthday party. This is it. The cake is french vanilla and gold with buttercream frosting and fondant. The top ribbon is fondant with rhinestone-type jewels for a bit of sparkle. There are colored chocolate diamonds surrounding the top cake with a fabric ribbon The carriage is made of gum-paste and poured sugar. I used brass wire to hang candy jewels that I made. I would just like to thank all the people here at CC who share their wonderful tips and ideas.
