While I am busy painting my house, I thought I would share a cake with you that I made recently. It was for a friend of mine who was throwing a party for her parent's 50th wedding anniversary.
Her only requests were to make a two tiered cake frosted white with gold accents.
I decided to go for a vintage look. I think these textured ovals fit the bill.
I had to include this picture. When looking for things to set my laser level on to mark the right spot on the cake, anything goes. Resistance... is ...futile!! (Yes, I admit it with pride, I'm a Trekkie.)
The topper was made of white chocolate and painted with gold luster dust mixed with vodka.
I used the same gold luster dust paint to color other accents on the cake. Using a very soft brush, I was able to paint right on the buttercream.
Here's a look at the top of the cake with some of the gold painted.
