I had this great post planned for this cake that I took to a baby shower for Vanessa & Baby Athena but time has gotten away from me.. and I'm so behind in blogging! This cake is from the beginning of May - 2 months ago! Athena is just about to make her appearance that's how bad I'm lagging!
The shower theme was "Once Upon a Time" so it was everything
ruffle-y (is that a word?) and lacey.. perfect for a sweet baby girl.
Someone actually said the cake looked like a dress.. which I didn't see til
they pointed it out. Everything on the cake was edible except for the ribbon & wand stick.
I made the crown by wrapping wax paper on a 7-UP
bottle (I had planned a tutorial but have somehow lost the pics in the last 2 months).
I then cut a piece of fondant and put it on the bottle. I let it sit for 24 hours and then glued the accents on with
vodka. I embellished with royal icing & lots of princess dust (which is actually disco dust). Notice the "A" for Athena? I thought it was cute to incorporate her initial into the crown.
Congratulations to Vanessa, Dan & the Meyer-Feistel family!!
