I worked on this display cake a few weeks ago and I was very pleased with the way it turned out. I wanted a create something with some bling, because it seems every other bride coming into the shop wants sparkles or rhinestones on their cake.
This cake features quite a few non-edible parts, and it's all the blingy parts. I have bought the sugar diamonds before and my brides are just not happy with the sparkle or the price!! For this cake I used individual rhinestones, a rhinestone rope as a border, and a gold rhinestone buckle as the center of a bow on the bottom tier.
One of my newest cake idols. Lori Hutchinson (The Caketress) likes to do a scoring effect on fondant that I really like. I did a little of that here on the top tier and really liked the effect. I'll be adding that to my bag of tricks for sure!!
The buckle was a little hard to see so I took a closeup of it... and it's still sorta hard to see. I took loops of fondant and placed the buckle in the center and then place a strip of fondant around the buckle, as if it really were a buckle for the gold bow.
I hope you all have a great week and stop back in on Friday for a neat little groom's cake!
