Here is a pretty, simple, and elegant birthday cake I made for a birthday. Shira’s mother in law ordered the cake to celebrate her birthday. She wanted it elegant but didn’t want it to look too much like a wedding cake. We agreed that making the cake in this Tiffany blue color would be the perfect idea. I quilted the tiers and added edible pearls for extra glam.
I had a kind of flower in mind to add to this cake. I really wanted to add cabbage roses like the ones seen in this purple ruffle cake. So I made them and allowed them to dry. Then Shira’s mother in law called and decided she really loved these fantasy flowers that I had made for this black and white engagement cake. So I started over and made these instead. I really like how they look on this cake, and they are fun to make! I just use different sized scalloped round cutters to form the bottom layers. Then I used any flower cutters I could find to fill in the center. I added a few edible pearls that I colored blue to match the cake. Simple and gorgeous! Happy birthday Shira!
