Cake – 07.11.09

Lisa contacted me a few weeks ago about a cake for her daughter.  She picked out a few cakes I had done recently to go by and told me she liked jewelry boxes. She wanted little girl colors and for the vanilla cake to feed about 30.

After going through all of the info I decided to combine all the cakes she liked and add the jewelry box as the main focus.  I went with a 3 tier cupcakes stand with the bottom two tier being cupcakes and the top tier being the box.

I bakes 3-6″ Round pans for the box.  I stacked two of the three for a 4″ box and covered them in pink buttercream.and then put the 3rd 6″ round cake on a board and did the same.  I wrapped hot pink ribbon around the bottom of the round box and piped cornelli lace of the lid.  I placed 5 dowel rods in the bottom to lift the lid 1″ off the box as it it were open.  I placed pink necklaces and bracelets where they draped out onto the sides of the cake and filled in the open space with pink/white daisies.  I tied a bow in the hot pink ribbon and placed on top.  I then baked 24 vanilla cupcakes and piped with pink buttercream.  A few days earlier, I made the “A”‘s for Anniston out of royal icing so they could harden to add to the cupcakes and topper. After I placed them on tope, I added hot pink sprinkles.  After placing all the letters on top I placed little daisies around the stand tie the top and bottom tiers together.  After 5 hours baking/decorating it was complete.  Happy Birthday Anniston!  Hope you have a wonderful day!  Thanks, Lisa, for the opportunity to play a part in her spoecial day.
