hi all!

Just sharing a pic of my 2nd fondant cake which I made for a Mother’s Day party and my best friend’s house. Everyone thought it looked lovely, it’s simple but I admit the flowers were store-bought. My next advtture is learning to make my own sugarpaste flowers.
The cake is Rose’s Butter Cream cake—- so so delicious.
And the filling/crumb coat is swiss meringue buttercream with lemon extract. Very yummy and simple.

Hi, Miriam!!

If this is your 2nd fondant cake, I would say that you are some sort of natural or prodigy or what-have-you!!!  That is beautiful! 

I love the cake with the pearl border, on the flower-shaped doily on the stand make a beautiful presentation!  The flowers look wonderful—the perfect size and colors—so, they may be store-bought, but they’re perfectly selected!!

Congratulations on a beautiful and yummy cake!!!

Thanks so much Anne! The feed back boosts my confidence as well as learning from everyone, it’s the best way to learn if you ask me!!
I’ll post up my next creation with my homemade flowers.
