Alpha Cpnference Cake

Alpha Cpnference Cake on Cake Central

This is a cake that I did for a local Alpha Conference. They let me choose the flavors and the design. It was a big cake (14, 10, 8) that was ordered on Friday and confirmed on Sunday so not much time for preparations. I would have loved to have done more with the globe on top but there was not enough time.

Big cakes are so much different to put together. One thing that I learned on this cake is that you do not need to roll the fondant thin to get a sharp edge. The time was limited and the cake was big so I did not roll the fondant as thin as I usually do but still managed to get a sharp edge by using two fondant smoothers in a crimping fashion.

Mango, carrot and cardamom cake flavors.
