Purple Stripes and Flower Cake!

Lately I've been super busy at work and so I haven't really had time for any cake orders.

With my boyfriend's grandmother's Birthday coming up, I knew I wanted to get back into the swing of things and make something beautiful for their family to enjoy on the special day!

Here it is!

I covered the cake in white fondant and instead of cutting out purple stripes, I indented the stripes onto the actual fondant (with horizontal stripes IN the stripes!), and brushed them with purple powder. I topped the cake off with a beautiful matching purple flower, and finished it with a gold rope and bow!

Everyone loved the cake!! Besides looking good, the cake also tasted good! Chocolate cake with cookies 'n' cream frosting - what's NOT to love??
