Gerbera Daisy Wedding Cake!



I had the pleasure of making a wedding cake for today for a woman I go to church with.  I also made her 75 wedding cake shaped cookies for favors.

The bottom and top tiers are 4 layers of chocolate cake with 2 layers of chocolate raspberry truffle filling and a middle layer of vanilla buttercream.  The middle 2 tiers are vanilla 4 layers of vanilla cake and 3 layers of vanilla buttercream.  They're covered with fondant and I made the black detail using fondant cut with my cricut cake.  I decorated it with handmade gum paste gerbera daisies airbrushed pink.

My cookies were decorated with pink details, gum paste flowers with sugar pearl centers and a monogram made out of sugarveil cut in my cricut.

  15. What did you use to cut the daisies? The Cricut Cake or something different. If you used the Cricut, then what cartridge did you use? It is absolutely stunning!
