Girly Snowflake Cake

Pink and Silver Snowflake Cake

I know it’s finally warm outside; I think it is safe to say that winter is officially over!  But I made this cake a few months ago, for my cute little niece, Anna.  It’s traditional to have a little party after a baby girl is born.  Although Anna won’t remember, her cake was super cute.

Metallic Silver Cake Tier

The bottom tier was covered with gray fondant.  Then I airbrushed it a metallic silver color.  This cake tier measured 8 inches in diameter.

Offset Chevron Cake Tier

This middle tier was the focal point of the cake, and took a really long time to create!  I needed to cut strips of varying widths in 4 different colors to apply to the cake.  This technique was definitely worth it though, I love the bold graphic look it gives the cake.

Cascading Fondant Snowflakes

The top tier was simply covered in pink and adorned with a cascade of snowflakes.  I had purchased a snowflake cutter and embosser set and was just waiting for the perfect occasion to use it.  I wanted the snowflakes to look like they were actually falling out of the sky.  Happy Birthday Anna!
