Bow birthday cake
This was the first cake that I was asked to do for my sister-in-law…..I had so many great ideas and then I was asked to do it blue….blue!!! Not my favorite color but I really enjoyed making this cake and was sad to see it being cut!
I thought if I could have done anything differently it would probably have been to use gum paste instead of fondant with CMC for the bow. It took forever to harden and it partially collapsed with the weight. As I was making it I thought, this is a huge waste of fondant just for a decoration…..however, the kids at the party thought the ribbons where the best thing ever to eat, so thankfully I didn’t use gum paste!
