January 5, 2013

Our first cake of 2013 was delivered to Parizade in Durham for an evening reception.  I was extremely pleased to do this cake.  The sisters who ordered the cake for their mother was very sweet and wonderful to work with.  They wanted something sparkly but needed blue - so we made the cake blue.  Blue angel food cake concealed beneath white fondant, pearls and silver.  The topper was of their mom's design and highlighted with gem stones.

The scroll work on the middle tier is actually very tiny pieces of fondant rolled thing and applied into the desired designs.  We thought it was just the right look for this cake.
