My neighbor turned 100 this week! I can't even fathom living that long, the sights and changes she has seen over the years.
I made a cake for her party this week and had some crafty friends send me some birthday cards for her as well. Her are a few pictures of the cake
My current obsession with cake continues...I wanted to try to make a wedding cake, but I didn't want the actual cake (even I can eat only so much cake ). So I used styrofoam blanks for the "cake" portion and just focused on the decoration part.
Teir 1: Covered in fondant, fondant stripes in black, and topped with a gum paste peony; gum paste leaves and flowers then cascade down the side.
Teir 2: Covered in fondant then gilded with edible gold leaf
Teir 3: Covered in fondant with molded fondant decorations that have been covered in gold luster dust
I'd estimate I spent about 12 hours on it and I know totally understand why they are so expensive.
