Tufted Billow Weave Mother's Day Cake
Each month, I have been having a drawing in my community for a free cake giveaway. This is my May cake. It is a Lemon Sour Cream Pound cake with raspberry and butter cream filling and butter cream on the outside with lemon/butter/vanilla flavored mmf on the outside. I also covered the board with fondant then air brushed it with gold luster sheen. The buttons between each tufted billow were made using gum paste in a mold that I had made using a button. The little place card was an idea that I had gotten from a fellow caker named Shirley Wilson, and these are kind of her trademark. It’s made from gum paste. The flowers are silk. I was going to use real flowers until I realized that they were going to cost more than what the cake was worth, and I really stink at making gum paste flowers. It’s something I just need to sit down and practice doing.
