A Tiffany Blue Communion Cake

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.

I just love how this cake and cupcakes came out.  They were so elegant and classic chic.  Plus, they matched my dining room which is always a plus!!  Enjoy!

I do not know how to bake, and I'm not into baking. But I enjoy cupcakes (and all things baked, especially when they're beautiful) MUCH more than the average person. I really enjoy looking at cakes, taking them in, and of course eating them!
That said I have to tell you that your Tiffany Blue Communion Cake is S-P-E-C-T-A-C-U-L-A-R!!!!
It is beautiful, elegant, it makes me happy just to look at it. I want you to know if I can appreciate it just from a photo, I know the real thing had to be excellent.
I appreciate your talent.
