In addition to Cupcake Camp DC this weekend, I had a cake to make for my collaboration with Lindi from Love the Day designs. When I dropped the cake off for her party I only got a small snapshot of what the whole thing was going to look like - and oh my was it ever cute. As we were pulling out to get on our way to Cupcake Camp, she walked out with these two tiny little butterfly costumes - and the cutest little girl - must have been the guest of honor =)
A month or so ago Lindi sent me her color palette and some pictures of cakes for inspiration. I really liked this one cake she sent over that had this eyelet kind of lace on it. I immediately went to my fave online cake supply shop (Global Sugar Art) to see what I needed to buy.
The cake was vanilla with orange cream filling (top tier) and strawberry with chocolate ganache filling (bottom tier). I made the the big sugar rose and butterflies from gumpaste a few days ahead of time so they would have time to dry. This was the first time I tried to make the eyelet cut outs...I should have practiced in advance because it didn't come out as nice as I would have liked - the fondant was sooo soft.
Here are a few pics of the cake - I can't wait to see the whole event!
