I made this cake for a friend’s friend.
I was all revved up about it.
A girl need some creativity in her life!
Prepare two cakes, using 9 x9 pans.
Cool, frost, and freeze for about 2-4 hrs.
If a cake needs carving, it must be frozen in order to get that “cold” cut.
I made a pillow template and placed it on the frozen cake. The rest was fairly easy. Just follow the template with a serrated knife(I used a bread knife). I also placed some tiny pieces of cake in the middle to give a soft, bumpy look of a cotton filled pillow. Next came the “fun” time. Fondant cover.
I used a white fondant, tinted it rose pink,rolled it a 17 x 17 rectangle(I wanted extra fondant at this stage to have it easily drape on the cake).
Once the fondant was on(successfully), life became easy.
Made the trims and lines.
Glued the pearls, fondant buttons,and tassels,
Added some magic(sparkle dust).
