90th Birthday Cake

Two months ago, our friend Carmin decided she would call Amelia about an upcoming cake for her grandma's big 90th birthday (this is the same gal that was so floored by our pink baby shower theme cake that she had to be a repeat customer!) A week ago, she finally called and asked for a 6-inch white cake with lemon frosting. It had to have grandma-like decorations (a.k.a. plenty of flowers). The flowers were made out of gum paste. We used putty to make a silicone mold of lace, then impressed a piece of fondant into the mold. As the deadline quickly approached, we didn't have time to mold sugar pearls, so instead we added a chain of plastic pearls around the base of the cake to give it a finished look. We added a final touch of lavender shimmer dust to give it a beautiful glow...just like Grandma!
