Last weekend, I made my first cake in Tampa! It was only supposed to feed 25 people, but I hadn’t touched a cake in weeks so I went a little overboard. I made it 2-tier, and it probably should have fed about 60 people. But, from what I’m told, there wasn’t much cake leftover after the party so I guess they didn’t mind!
The cake was for my mother-in-law’s boss, Debi, who owns a clothing boutique called the Princess Boutique. They told me they wanted the cake decorated in shades of pink, topped with the Princess tiara, and to somehow incorporate high-heeled shoes.
So there you have it! I decided that using black silhouettes of the stilettos would look the most chic and help to contrast the “little girl” feel that the pinks & tiara were portraying. And I used the new Fabric Fondant & Gum Paste Mold from Wilton that I picked up a couple of weeks ago at the Wilton Food Blogger Workshop (stay tuned to see more of what I’m making with my loot).
But Debi wasn’t the only one celebrating a princess’ birthday last week! Our puppy Nani turned 4! In dog years, we’re the same age now!
Happy birthday, Debi & Nani!
