While polka dots don’t make it into the clothes I wear, I just love them for cakes! They are so festive and fun! This time I decided to do an ombre gradient of color using 3 different shades of each color. The star on top is also a gradient (which you can see in the 2nd picture below). This cake is an 8″ & 10″.
Today was the baby dedication for a little guy of a friend of mine. Last year I had the pleasure of doing her wedding cake so I was excited to have her call to ask me to do their little one’s baby dedication cake. She loved the color scheme of their wedding cake and wanted to replicate the colors/shape of it; only for the baby dedication. And this time we did polka dots! I love polka dots on cake. So fun!
This cake is a 6″ – 8″ – 10″ square cake. The dots and cross are fondant but the rest is buttercream.
This was the cake I did for my Wilton Fondant & Gumpaste last class. Wasn’t in the mood for flowers So I did MMF for all the accents. The second pic shows the same cake with some gumpaste decorations I made. But I like it better without them ~ just perfect like that.
