This cake is totally different than I had intended when I started making it! I had planned to make two fondant margarita glasses with fondant lime slices that would stand up on top of the cake and the design would have centered around that.
I attempted twice to make the glasses and the results didn't turn out the way that I wanted so I decided to go with pink peonies but had to change some colors and elements of the design to make that work.
The cake is a pumpkin sponge cake filled and iced with cream cheese icing and covered with a caramel-flavored fondant.
A gumpaste peony and bud complete the design. I'm fairly happy with how it turned out, although the margarita glasses would have been cute too!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
