So she starts by carving up her layers of cake into a ball type shape.IMG_20150109_133917Then she fills the cake with her flavor, damming up the sides with Swiss Meringue buttercream.

Then, with rubber gloves, uses her warm hands to smooth the cake into its round shape.IMG_6716_2Then she covers the cake in white fondant, smoothing out the edges so it looks like this beautiful thing.IMG_6717_2She then makes the top by rolling out a thick piece of white fondant and cutting it into a circle and rounding out the edges. Then she affixes the top with water to the fondant on the cake.IMG_6719The spout is made of Rice Krispie square, molded into shape, coated in white chocolate and covered in modeling chocolate (to ensure smoothness) before being covered in the same white fondant. The spout has a skewer in it, and gets jammed into the cake in the appropriate spot, then sealed on with melted white chocolate and freeze sprayed into place.IMG_6720_2 She uses pre-made daisies and leaves, and has Frances help her make rosettes, attaching them with white chocolate. She rolls a ball of blue fondant for the top handle.IMG_6721_2The handle is fondant dried onto a wire (the fondant has extra tylose added for quicker drying time) and is skewered into the bottom and white chocolated to the top. She finished the cake off with Swiss dots piped on with royal icing.

Isn’t that just the cutest thing?!MG_6727
