These cakes were made for my sister and her husband for their birthdays. He’s not a chocolate fan (and the rest of us are!) so I made him a special yellow cake.
First the “hers” design…I based the design on some fabric I saw on a purse. The choclate icing is buttercream and the strip is fondant. It didn’t work out perfect but in the end most of the “flaws” are hidden. 🙂 The design on top is two fold…first it is a replica of the scrolls on the side and secondly it is an S which start’s my sister’s name (Shelly).
And for the “his” cake… her hubby works in construction/home improvement/remodeling. So he got a “wood” cake with a gumpaste circular saw blade cutting in. 🙂 The saw blade is painted with a silver shimmer that doesn’t show as much in the photo. The cake is a 4″ round, fondant covered and painted to get that wood look.
