First Communion Cake
This was a collaboration with a local cake decorator. I sent the chalice, grapes and wheat stalks and my sisters cake lady did the rest. I wanted to thank Sandra Smiley for her advice in both the chalice Construction and shipping suggestions. Everything arrived unbroken! Chalice was fondant on top of styrofoam, the grapes were chocolate fondant and the wheat was fondant on bamboo skewers.
The flowers are blooming here in Connecticut-sugar cookies influenced by nature. Technique includes blending royal icing, dry and wet luster dust and chocolate fondant.

This was fun. The grandparents gave me a picture of the baby's nursery which became the inspiration for the cake. The boat, lighthouse and other decor is fondant. Everything else was butter cream. I'd prefer to work with all fondant, but most customers shy away.
