I was asked by a fellow blogger and friend, Ronnie Fein, to make her a special birthday cake. Ronnie has a lovely blog called Kitchen Vignettes where she shares her favorite dishes. Her recipes often seem simple, but they are complex and perfect in flavor. When she asked me to help her celebrate her special day I was so excited, especially since she left me in charge of the design.
I am really in love with modern patterns and love applying those simple clean lines to my cakes. I recently took a Craftsy course (my new obsession) led by Jessica Harris and learned the techniques needed to make this cake. I couldn’t wait to try it and I love the results. The offset chevron is so modern yet elegant and I’m pleased with the color choices.
This hand cut fantasy flower was the perfect finishing touch to this simple cake. I painted the edges with a little silver luster dust to give it a little extra glam. If you were wondering, the inside of the cake is a white cake recipe that Ronnie shared with me. It was delicious! You can see her post about this cake here. Happy birthday Ronnie, and many more!
