Hello everyone! Hope everyone’s week is going great! I have finished two more cake designs and I thought I’d share them with you. These cakes are a hexagon shape as you can see in the photos…I think this is a fun shape to play around with and it produces a “different” looking cake that might just be the look a bride wants. The first cake is a fun and funky design that is easy to execute. Simply cut out fondant dots with a circle cookie cutter and glue them onto your fondant cake with a little water. As you can see in the photos I used a stamp impression to create a flower design on the yellow dots to give them a different kind of look. You can see this process in a previous post. I feel like this would be a good cake for a beginner to try out since the look can be easily duplicated and come out crisp and clean looking.
I then tried out a second look that is more simplistic. I made this fondant flower a while ago and thought that putting it on the cake as the main focus would be sort of fun. You can check out the process for how to make this flower on a previous post.
Before I talk about the giveaway I need to thank two bloggers for giving me some awards. First I wanted to thank Fields of Cake… for the “Kick” Ass Blog” award! I never considered myself “kick ass”, but maybe now I will!
I also wanted to thank Comida Espanola for the Premio “Arte y Pico” Award. It is so fun that blogs can reach everyone around the world and I love that even though my blog isn’t in Spanish that people can still enjoy it through photos, so thank you for checking it out!
Now for your favorite part…giveaways!!! I absolutely love the book Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey by Jill O’Conner, so I thought I would share my love and give it to a blogger that inspires me!
So all you have to do to enter into the drawing is post a comment with an idea for a wedding cake design for me. I am trying out new designs and always love hearing what everyone’s dream cake would be or what they wish they would’ve done. I am so excited to hear your thoughts and opinions and will be picking a winner on Saturday night at midnight. So get your wheels a turning and give me some good inspiration for another cake design. Thanks!!!
