This was done as a 50th anniversary cake for some friends.   First time airbrushing stencils, thought it would make such a nice gentle pattern to go with their gold theme.  I like how it turned out, although someday I'd like to make a bit more realistic gumpaste roses.  I generally buy them just to save time but this time I made them.  I actually think it looks nicer in person, esp as the curtains they used are a shiny "damask" type gold and it goes so well with everything!

The cake was covered in homemade marshmallow fondant. The top tier had a round fondant "broach" with pearlized dragees as accents. The middle tier was a quilted pattern. Rather than using the standard caking tool that creates the quilting look, I freehand the design to make sure that I get the spacing as accurate as possible. In order to do this, I cover the cake and then have to work quickly. First, I measure the diameter of the cake and mark equal distances around the top and bottom of the tier with a toothpick. Then, I take either a strong rule or a straight edge scraper tool and angle it at about a 45 degree angle. I simple connect the top dot with the corresponding bottom dot that is two intervals away (wow, does that make sense at all?). This creates the quilting pattern. Then, I adhere pearlized dragees that match the broach on the top of the cake in the overlapping corners. The design of bottom tier is done by......... using a stencil! Can you believe that? :) I tinted buttercream to match the avocado color of the middle tier. Although it might sound easy, stenciling is pretty challenging when you're putting it onto a round cake, let alone onto fondant. I tried my best and was pretty happy with the outcome.

My first attempt at "stenciling".  I love the look and was very surprised/pleased at how it came out for my first.

I loved making this cake!!!  Lots of firsts for me... First stenciling, tallest single fondant covered tier (the 6" double barrel), first attempt at edible jewels, first fail at edible jewels (went with gum paste & luster dust instead), first and last time I use a boxed cake mix based recipe (I definitely prefer scratch recipes), and first transportation trouble... the cake was rather tall and narrow, smallest tier was 4".  Thanks to Stellastarchild for sharing her converse shoe pattern and directions!  The stencil damask pattern, color scheme, and overall design for this cake is based on the party's invitation... see my blog for more details.

My first attempt at a wedding cake- practice for a friend's wedding.  I stenciled the damask pattern on top and bottom-  would definitely try a different method next time!  Thanks for looking!

This design is based on the bday girl's bedding set. 10" & 8" rounds covered in fondant. The damask design was printed on my edible image printer. The Eiffel Tower is gumpaste. :-)

This cake was done for a 40th birhtday celebration.   The two pink tiers were done in buttercream with fondant accents.  The middle white tier was done in all buttercream.  The damask was done using a cake stencil.  First time to use a stencil...I loved it.  The 40 was done in gumpaste with black disco dust.

This is my first cupcake tree that I made for a bridal shower.  Two dozen cupcakes and a 6" carrot cake all with cream cheese icing.  I used 6" cake dummies covered in ribbon for the center rounds.  I love damask.  I learned a lot about stenciling with cream cheese icing...it's not easy!  Thanks for looking.

We worked so hard on this cake.  Had to redo the fondant on two tiers,  then when we get to the venue,  the florist would not let us put the flowers on.  This is what he did to our beautiful cake.  I hate the flower arrangement,  but what could I do.  From now on all my brides will have to sign a paper saying that the flower arranging can only be done by us or there will not be any flowers on the cake.  TFL

I planned to add more detail to the cake but ran out of time....I held too many hats for this event and simply time was not on my side.  The feather topper matched the table centerpieces.  I'm happy how the cake turned out and the party, it was all worth it in the end!  Oh and stenciling is a PITA!!  LOL

I made this wedding cake for free for a friend.  This was my first wedding cake.   I had alot of trouble with this cake.  Everything that could go wrong, went wrong.  Due to the different problems, I had to change the design of the cake.  I actually liked the end result better than the original design.   I was very pleased with it and the bride and groom were blown away!
