Hidden Flag Cake
I wanted to make a cake for Memorial Day that was a little different, so I came up with the hidden flag cake! I'm sure others have done it before me, but I've never had one or seen one. The cake is vanilla cake colored blue and red torted into thin layers. The white stripes are buttercream. I really wasn't spending a lot of time on the outer decoration since the inside was the focus of the cake. Everyone was surprised for sure! Will I make it again? Not likely! It was sooooooooo sweet! If I do make it again, I'll make sure to count my stripes!
First Wedding Cake!
The bride asked me to copy the flowers on the place cards for the guest tables, so I made them out of royal icing. This was my first real wedding cake, and I was really pleased with it! I was so nervous to set up the cake while they were watching, though! I can do without that stress, especially since the flowers kept breaking! Luckily, I made lots of them!
The maid of honor surprised her sister with this cake. She sent me pics of the couple's animals so I could represent them as well. They loved it! The animals and flowers on the side of the cake are fondant/gumpaste.
