This is my nieces First Holy Communion Cake. It was a genoise au chocolat, strawberry mousseline filling, vanilla mousseline under the fondant. All the recipes are from TCB. The stained glass windows are made of hard candy and royal icing.

Thank you Ski. The stained glass was a bit of a challenge to make.

Rozanne, so beautiful and elegant, I love it!  How did you shape the stained glass?  It’s a lovely effect.  Thanks so much for letting us see this.

Thank you Julie. I drew a template of the window onto parchment paper and placed the crushed candy on it. Of course when it melted it didn’t retain it’s shape perfectly but at least it wasn’t one big sheet of melted candy. It had a shape to it somewhat. I carefully broke the uneven edges once it cooled. I broke quite a few in the process as it is very brittle. I then piped the royal icing to form the frame of the window. I got the idea from Rose’s Christmas cookie book. Gia also gave me the link to the Whimsical Bakehouse site. Thank you Gia. I e-mailed them and was told to break up the melted candy once it was cooled and then piece them together to make the window. I didn’t do that b/c I didn’t think I could get it to break into squares. It would have been impossible. I hope I made sense to you.  LOL

I’ve been out of touch lately, and haven’t had time to visit the blog and forum.  It’s great to be back and this cake is just beautiful!  Congrats on a job well done.
