Bridal Shower

This is my new favorite cake! The lady that ordered it sent me an invitation for the bridal shower and I pulled design ideas from that. This is 1 tier of vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream and 1 tier of chocolate with chocolate raspberry truffle filling. I covered it with fondant. The flowers I made with gumpaste and airbrushed. This was my first time making gumpaste flowers, I might add. The butterflies are also gumpaste that I airbrushed and then brushed on silver luster dust. The tiles are fondant squares that I individually airbrushed. This was a really fun cake!


  1. Very pretty! I love the fondant tiles! I thought they were painted! You are very skilled at airbrushing :)
