Bridal Shower Cake
This morning, I completed this 2-tier heart shaped bridal shower cake. The top tier is a 6" heart shaped 2-layer cake and the bottom tier is a 12" heart shaped 2-layer cake.
I embossed the sides with a diamond mat approximately 30 minutes after I iced the cakes in order to let the buttercream set. The plaque on top, ribbons and bows are created with fondant. The ribbon roses are also created with fondant.
The 16" cake drum is covered with fondant and I crimped the edges with a heart-shaped crimping tool then glued a coordinating satin ribbon around the edge of the cake drum.
