This is a cake that I made for a baby shower last night. It is a two tiered square fondant cake. The bottom tier is a vanilla rum cake with a butter cream filling. The top-tier is red velvet cake with chocolate filling. This is one of the few times I have made a vanilla rum cake. It came out very moist and delicious. I made a glaze to put on the cake and it really accented the cake well.
The colors of the shower were navy and white with accents of yellow and orange. I colored the fondant to coordinate with the shower. It was a more clean, simple and modern feel rather than the traditional shower cake.
I think I will be adding the rum cake to my cake choices more often. What do you think?
