Buttercream and My 27th Birthday Cake

It's my 27th birthday and I couldn't be more blessed in life and to make it on this earth another year. I had a butterfly garden theme for my birthday cake this year that I designed and decorated it. The design for this cake was created in different sections. I started on the fondant decorations (butterflies and heart) last Friday and assembled the cake on Monday. The teal colored border I especially made for this cake, since teal is one of my favorite colors. This is a 2 layer cake. A butter pound cake is on one layer and lemon cake is the other layer.

Fondant Butterflies were one of the centerpieces of this cake. I made marshmallow fondant and cut out the butterflies. I then put veins in the butterfly wings and waited for the fondant to harden. The butterflies were then hand painted.

Flowers were the other centerpiece of this cake. I made buttercream flowers on wax paper using a large star tip. I also made buttercream roses which turned out great. They really made the garden theme really stand out. The grass was put on the cake using decorating tip 233.

I love all of the things that you can do with buttercream and the different decorating tips on cake. From flowers to ruffles the possibilities are endless.

Savor the Baking,
