Jess' Shower Cake

 Jess' Shower Cake  on Cake Central

White cake with embossed buttercream and dragees, fondant tissue paper and fondant covered styrofoam lid. Gumpaste bow and edible image on fondant gift tag with Celtic design. Thanks to Fairytale and KimAZ for their help on how to support the lid - I ended up using white chocolate on top of the dowels.

Thank you everyone! I used dowels cut to the height I wanted the lid and brushed the tops of the dowels with white chocolate before placing the lid. The chocolate "glued" the lid in place.

Thank you everyone! I ran the fondant through the pasta machine to make it very thin then shaped it with tissue until it dried.

Very nice cake! So you dried the tissue paper before placing on the box??? The shape for the tisse is square and then you fold right?? cafear1@hotmail.com

the "tissue paper" was run through the pasta machine until very thin then left to sit for a couple minutes. Then I bunched it and/or folded it up and let it dry a day before using it. The pieces were square and rectangle.
