The buttons & bows and the feet are made from fondant & highlighted with edible dusting powders while the banner is made from gum paste. We achieved the cloudy look on the cake by covering the cake in white fondant and using the edible dusting powders with a soft brush. A quilting pattern is used on the bottom tier to finish off the look.
When we told them we were also celebration a special event on Sept 18th, Juliana's christening and that we were going to make her cake with an Anne Geddes theme, they decided that they also would love to have the topper of their cake in the same theme as their daughter is a big Anne Geddes fan.
Here's a close up of the topper. The baby, flower & leaves are made from gum paste. The babies diaper is made from fondant. A little edible glitter is added to make it all so sweet.
The bottom tier is a 12" vanilla cake with vanilla mousse & fresh strawberries for the filling, the top tier is an 8" chocolate zucchini cake with vanilla mousse filling. Our chocolate zucchini cake is one of our favourite cakes which when people hear "zucchini" they tend to shy away from it but it's quite a decadent choc cake, (a healthier choc cake) and we want to thank Sue for taking the chance and giving it a try. I'm sure it will be a big hit and can't wait to hear from her on the verdict of the "chocolate zucchini". When I dropped off this cake today Sue was delighted and had only wonderful comments on it.
We wish the soon to be new parents and grandparents all the best and wonderful precious days ahead with the new bundle of joy!
