I made this fall themed cake for my friend Seema's engagement party which was held on Thanksgiving weekend in October. The colours of the flowers were chosen to complement her stunning outfit.
The gold at the bottom is made of ribbon which gives the cake a professional finish. The little flowers are made with a cookie cutter from my cake decorating kit. Each petal is scored with a little tool to give it a 3D effect. I placed a silver bead in the middle to make it even more elegant. I used gum paste (sort of like fondant) and water mixture to 'glue' the edible sugar beads on.
This was my first attempt at a stacked tier cake. There are plastic dowels placed in the first tier to support the second layer of cake.
The bottom tier was a chocolate cake with a strawberry filling and the top was vanilla with strawberry.
Congrats Seema and Amit! Looking forward to the wedding!
