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.
This cake is a fully buttercream iced and decorated except for the gumpaste flowers
Sometimes we get to try an established look but with a new twist. Ruffles are mostly done with fondant but most customers want to avoid it. We tried to accomplish the same look but with buttercream. I’m really happy with the outcome and learned a lot on this one cake. The sweet bride was willing to trust me without ever seeing what it would look like and I’m very grateful for her faith in my abilities.
