A few months ago I got an email from a friend of a friend. She wanted a super chic First Communion cake for her daughter.
She sent me a few pictures online but she wasn't totally happy with them. One cake had a praying little girl on it. Her daughter didn't want any of that! I have to confess, I was happy that she didn't because making people out of gumpaste is no fun!
Anyway, I took her idea and ran with it. I made a 12" round vanilla cake and covered it with Tiffany Blue fondant. I handmade over 200 gumpaste flowers and added edible pearls for the centers. I made a patchwork pattern on the sides of the cake (which took careful measuring).
I also made a few dozen matching cupcakes.
