After all the buttercream false starts, eggwhite questions, and cakes spilling out of the pans, here it is. Yellow buttercake with Mousseline Buttercream. Decorated with hand-made and painted butter cookie shells, and some chocolate shells and stones. The theme for this wedding shower was the beach, and she also ordered butter cookies decorated like sea-shells. The platter shows the favor cookies with the cookies that would eventually grace the cake, all on the cake board.
It was worth the greasy sticky kitchen. I learned a lot, and found everyones posts most enlightening. It’s great to have a place where you can pick everyone’s brains.
Over the years, my emphasis has been on decorated cookies. This is the second time I have used them as cake decorations.
