Fondant Cake with Sugar Flowers

I hope that you all are having a great week so far. I wanted to share with you all my latest cake. It is a 10 inch cake that is covered in fondant and sugar flowers. The cake base is also covered in fondant.This is how I wanted the cake to look in my mind and I'm proud of how it turned out.

The bow and border are handmade out of fondant. I shaped the bow a week before I was going to use it so it would dry and I would know that it was not going to move when I placed it on the cake. I think it looks nice with the scalloped border, which is a nice change from the traditional ribbon border.

The flowers on top of the cake are also handmade. They are pale pink, peach roses, and plum colored carnations that are made of gumpaste. I dusted the pale pink roses, like the one above, with a little color dust to give them a more realistic look.

One of my favorite things to do cake decorating wise is to make sugar flowers. They are time consuming, but the end product is so beautiful they are worth every minute of construction.

I really enjoyed making this cake. I hope that you all have enjoyed this blog post and that you all have a blessed week.
