This cake is for a surprise bridal shower. The top tier is vanilla bean sour cream cake with vanilla bean Italian meringue buttercream and the bottom tier is sour cream chocolate cake with vanilla bean Italian meringue buttercream covered in vanilla fondant.
The cake topper was made with gumpaste and brushed with cotton candy lustre dust that I found in Spokane, Washington last month. It is a beautiful color!
The top tier had rosettes of buttercream fading from black at the bottom to white at the top. I added a few simple pink gumpaste flowers to complete the tier.
The bottom tier was stenciled with black damask and had a cotton candy fondant ribbon around the base of the tier with a big fondant bow in the front.
Now that the cake is done and the kitchen is clean, it is officially the weekend for me! Here's hoping the bridal shower is fantastic!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
