Modern Mom-to-be!

This is for a baby shower tomorrow evening. They wanted the cake to match the invitation and read Happy "Birth"day Laura (mom to be). I outlined the woman in edible marker free hand then filled in with petal dusts. Trees and sky and doggie also all in petal dusts to replicate the "chalk" affect on the invite. The cake is a classic yellow cake I wanted to try, filled with lemon Italian meringue buttercream. Covered in fondant. I'm uploading the close ups of the invite woman and the one I painted. Enjoy!!

dawn - I use Italian meringue buttercream which doesn't crust, so the only thing I write on is fondant. I bought a pack of the fine point wilton markers... not a wilton user, but thought I would try them out this time. In the past, I've just used dove gray petal dust and lemon extract with a two hair brush. This was a little easier. Thanks again!
