Well since my gallery of tiered or wedding cakes isn’t as full as my sugar cookie gallery I decided I better do a couple more cakes over the next few weeks. Since I didn’t have any major event I decided to test out a few designs on a dummy cake (styrofoam cake layers). I wanted to get the most bang for my buck so I decided to cover one cake dummy in white fondant and then try out a few different designs on that one cake. The first two cake looks are quite simple, but I love that look. If you have a really nicely covered cake and a beautiful flower then I feel like you should showcase them. This look is quite simplistic and modern, but for some brides it might be the look they’re looking for. To get the flower to stay in the cake I inserted a skewer up the flower and then lodged the other side of the skewer into the cake dummy. For more simplistic, modern designs check out April Reed. She is by far one of my favorite cake designers and I am in awe of her talent!
So as you can see not too much difference between these two, but I wanted to see which flower and background I liked better with the brown. Let me know you opinion!
After trying those two simple cake designs I thought I would try a little different design. I get my background paper from Paper Source or Martha Stewart’s line at Michael’s normally. Last time I was at Paper Source I fell in love with this background. It is so funky and fun and it inspired me to make a cake design about it.
I simply rolled out my colored fondant and then impressed it with Clear Stamps by Autumn Leaves. I also brushed the fondant with luster dust and then cut out the circles with a small circle cutter. I attached the fondant circles with a little dab of water.
Thanks for taking a look!
