Quicenniera (Sweet 15)

I've been away this week so Mel was on her own and did a beautiful job on this cake. This was ordered from a previous client for her daughter's 15th birthday being held at the Borgata in Woodbridge. Martha, our client, had a vision after speaking with Catalina from Luminaries. Luminaries are a type of vase like candle holders that come in all shapes and sizes. The plan was to use these between the tiers of cake.

All 3 cakes are covered in white fondant with a purple/lilac and pink theme. The bottom tier is a red velvet 12" round with cream cheese filling topped with an 8" Luminaries glowing in pink. The cake has purple/lilac and pink gum paste flowers. The middle tier is a 10" vanilla cake with vanilla mousse & fresh strawberries with pink dragees scattered. Separating the middle tier and the top tier is a 6" luminaries glowing in purple. The top tier is an 8" coffee chocolate cake filled with a cappuccino cream and is adorned with a pink gum paste bow.


The cake is topped with a pink gum paste # 15 and a small luminary. A very pretty effect.  Thanks to Mel for her wonderful work and my sister Lisa & my brother Fred who delivered the cake and helped set it up.

We wish the birthday girl a very Happy Birthday!
