so... it's been awhile since I posted any cakes on here. But even though this one is pretty simple in design, it is actually my first 3 tiered buttercream cake. (The accents are of course fondant). Being a fondant girl, I always cringe when people ask for a buttercream base- plus the fact that I live in phoenix and the day I delivered this it was 114 degrees out. EEK! Used a smooth buttercream, hot bench scraper and viva to get it super smooth.
