Grammie's Gift Cake

 Grammie's Gift Cake  on Cake Central

I made this for my DH's Grandma for her party tomorrow. I carried the pink and brown theme through with chocolate cake and raspberry SMBC as filling. This is my first loopy type bow and first time using the diamond pattern on the sides. I had some trouble getting the chocolate fondant to cooperate too, but overall I am pretty happy with the outcome. My influences were cakes by Kathy-mi and Nunuk.

Thank you for the nice comments! If I do another, maybe I will take pics! I was really nervous the bow wouldnt turn out. I have tried a couple of other times and it didnt work. I think having the larger width made it easier.

I'm saying "ditto" to all the other comments. This came out very nice. Im adding it to my fav's too. I have yet to try a bow and Im curious, is the bow made of fondant too?

I like the wider loops. Those are nice. I really like how you put the little pink dots at the cruxes of the diamonds though. good detail and your fondant is perfect:)
