I had great time making this cake, as this was my first experience with using these foam separators. They worked well, I just covered them with fondant and painted them with pearl dust. Luckily for me, I have found that Wedding White Fondarific matches my buttercream almost exactly. It comes in very handy when I need to mix elements on a cake.
The rest of the cake is buttercream, except for the golden curls, which I also made from Fondarific that I extruded and then painted gold after they were placed on the cake.
The bling on this cake was all provided by the bride. She bought the 5-row rhinestones and the rhinestone buckles (the center of each tier) while she and her fiance were visiting in New York. It was the first thing they purchased for their wedding.
GIVEAWAY UPDATE: Oh yeah, today's the day we announce the winner(s) of our Marshmallow giveaway. We didn't get over 100 new "likes" on Facebook, but we decided to give away 2 tins anyway. Congratulations to Maria and Jenna! I will get your marshmallows in the mail within a week!
