Princess Emma Kate's Birthday!

6" Strawberry cake with fresh strawberries with Strawberry SMBC/8" Red Velvet with cream cheese icing, both covered in white chocolate ganache then MMF. Special thanks goes to Becky Willard for her amazing stenciling demo she did at Fun with Sugar hosted by Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show last week! Perfect timing as I just had a request for that very thing this weekend! Style of the crown was picked out by the mom who ordered it. Everything is edible! TFL!!

So nice! I tried making a crown like that the other day and it was a fail….any tips?

Nancy ...

Thank you miamipartycakes! Let me see if I can explain this without confusing you! lol

I cut out my template and it was just big enough to wrap around my 4" cake pans. I put my two pans together bottoms touching then wrapped a legal sheet of paper around them folded length wise in half so the crown would not show the crease in the middle from the pans. Then I wrapped the crown around the pans and the points slowly bent down. Although there were a few that wanted to fall more than others so I just used a prop to hold them up until they dried. After a few days of drying, I very carefully removed it from the pan (I hadn’t attached the sides yet) and then put some edible glue on the ends and put them together and let it air dry a few more days. After it was dried I airbrushed it silver then painted it with dry silver luster dust to finish it off.

Fantastic! The damask and the quilting together add such a regal feel! Well done! And thank you for the description of how you made the crown!
