We had fun experimenting yesterday with some new fondant techniques on this cake. Courtney’s friend Brie called and asked if we would make a birthday cake for her friend Nina (we previously made a couple of baptism cakes for Nina’s son Rome). She wanted something in black and white and wanted it to be pretty and elegant. Cort and I weren’t really sure what we were going to do but when we got to Michaels to get the flower for the top and the ribbon, we started looking at some of the cake books there and saw something similar to this and decided to give it a try and it came out pretty good for a first try on the pattern. I’m sure we will attempt this again on another cake and will be able to get a little better at it. Love the look with the black sugar pearls in the pattern. It’s a white cake with buttercream icing and Pettinice fondant. Happy Birthday Nina!
