Baby Shower Carriage

I found this design in a Wilton book but it was designed with Rolled Fondant. I was told that there was to be NO fondant on the cake so needless to say, I iced and decorated the cake with Buttercream Icing. The carriage is made from Gum Paste decorated with royal icing. I made two carriages. It's a good thing because I broke one. They are very delicate! The whole cake was challenging but very fun!

No fondant whatsoever. I use my Pampered Chef scraper (which is plastic) to press the lines in the icing once it has crusted a few minutes. The dots were made with a large writing tip (it was a #9 or #12). I just put the tip close to the cake and squeezed the bag and let the icing flow out to make a big circle. Then after it lightly crusted, I lightly pressed each one with a Viva paper towel. Miraculously they came out round. (Actually it was my husband's idea to use the round tip).
