This was a quilt cake for a woman's 90th birthday. The cakes are buttercream and the quilts and decorations are fondant. I used real quilt patterns, the red is Log Cabin and the blue is Friendship Star. The family requested all the words and bright colors, but the rest was my design. Each section is individually "quilted". The topper is made of foam (didn't have time for gumpaste to dry), covered in icing. I wasn't too happy with how it turned out, I thought it looked a little like Dr. Seuss. I was very happy with the rest of the cake. Several people asked me why I put real fabric on a cake! .
