It’s Monday! Let’s freshen the new work week with a gorgeous, elegant cake. Later this month, we’ll be making Andrea’s & Anthony’s wedding cake (It is TOTALLY different from this one. We can’t wait to show you!), but Andrea’s mom & sister wanted to surprise her with a bridal shower cake as well.
So we met in secret (Have we mentioned how much Mel loves sweet secrets?? Gender reveal cakes, surprise cakes, etc!) and designed this beauty:
The cake was covered in white and black fondant, and we used a stencil from Designer Stencils to apply the Damask pattern with black royal icing. But we also wanted to incorporate a little more of the teal accent color so we added a few teal dots here and there.
The top tier was decorated with an hand-piped swirl pattern in black and teal royal icing. And then we topped the cake with another Damask pattern and more teal dots.
As a finishing touch, we added a white ruffle with a teal fondant ribbon down the middle and black fondant “buttons.”
