Pink Shimmer Cake

This cake is a pink and white fondant cake. The cake is a vanilla cake with a strawberry filling. I covered the cake with pink fondant. Next, I added a white bow to the cake. After adding the bow I painted it with a pink pearl shimmer. You can paint the shimmer on using lemon extract or vodka. For this cake I used lemon extract. Whichever you choose to use you will not taste it on the cake as it evaporates. It has a really pretty iridescent look to the cake. After, I finished with the painting I added the polka dots to the ribbon strips. The bottom cake board is also covered in white fondant.

I hope you like it. What do you think?

Cupcakes

Last night in class we learned about making, filling and decorating cupcakes. I chose to bake lemon cupcakes. I filled them with a lemon filling. I have never filled cupcakes before it was very easy and very fun. In class we practiced making different flowers like the shaggy mum and the pompom flower. Surprisingly, I found that decorating cupcakes is actually harder than a regular cake. I made four different colors with my icing, light blue, dark blue, purple, and green. The color combination looked pretty nice together.

Next week is the last week of this class session. I will be taking fondant and gum paste design next.

Here are a few pictures of the cupcakes I decorated. What do you think? Do you like lemon cake? Which one is your favorite? Also, check out the photos page for more pictures.
