We don’t often do baby shower cakes, but when a super sweet mother of a former brides asks SUPER nicely we just can’t refuse. It also doesn’t hurt to let us make whatever we want and give us no budget at all; but we still kept it reasonable. We made this three tier pale pink buttercream covered cake. For the bottom tier we just molded some lace with a silicone mold and painted it with a pearl luster dust.
We got to make a PINK wedding cake! Squeal! It was “blush” but we know that really means pink! I love a bride that does something different! We made this three tier cake with French buttercream which is all butter and “non crusting”. Once the cake is perfectly smooth, we chill it in the freezer for about an hour before we do the stenciling. If it gets too cold the cake will get condensation and that causes your stencil buttercream not to stick and that is bad.
We are proud to be part of the buttercream flower revolution! We got to pull out some old school roses and some new school ranunculus flowers. We had to watch some videos and many of the flowers are not very good, but they were tasty!
We also tried some watercolor buttercream techniques and finished everything off with some gold! I’m happy with the way the cake out and people loved fighting over the delicious flowers!
