I love this cake. I loved it so much that I wanted to keep it for myself. I was asked to make a small pretty cake with flowers and this is what I created. The inside of the cake is chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling.
I covered the cake in white fondant. Then I draped different size fondant pearl strands around the cake. To make the pearls, I use a silicone mold with three sizes pearl options. I dust the mold with powdered sugar and press a thin rope of fondant into the mold. Then I spread the mold open and pop out the strand of pearls. I use some water to attach the pearls to the cake.
I made three fondant bows to top off the strands of pearls. I filled in the center of the cake with these beautiful pink flowers that I bought (don’t tell anyone that I cheated!) I bought these flowers a while ago and I though this was a perfect time to use them. They came in pink but they look kind of flat so I airbrushed the edges in shimmery gold. I really think the gold detail brings the store bought flowers to life. Finally, I airbrushed the whole cake in shimmery pearl color to give it some glitz and glam!
