My First Pillow Cake

My First Pillow Cake on Cake Central

I finally did it. I made my first pillow cake. This was sort of a practice run for what I plan to do for my little girl's birhday cake. This was based on a Colette Peters cake. I did attempt a gumpaste tiara to put on top, but it fell apart. How does everyone get those things to stay together? I must not have let it dry long enough maybe. Oh, this cake is WASC covered in fondant....then painted with luster paint.

absolutely beautiful. i love it! i did a gumapste tiara recently and used tylose "glue" to hold the pieces together. i also used thin strips of gumpaste at the weaker joints. i let it dry for about three days before taking it off the form. hth!
