Last week was a very busy week. I was out of state for three days and I was in the process of making two cakes. I was basically an owl for the whole week. I actually went to Panguitch, Utah, thanks to Tita Mary for the nice cabin–it was a lot of fun and lots of sleepless nights due to the freezing temperature. It is in a remote area so if you haven’t been to Panguitch, this is definitely a place for peace and serenity.
As of the cake, here it is.
Nope, no one is getting married this fall–it is actually my mom’s birthday cake. My mom is such a very special person. She was there for me through thick and thin (literally), she is very supportive and her efforts are outstanding. To reward her, I made this cake.
I was inspired by Ron Ben Israel with this cake. Of course, I gave my own little twist, but thanks a to Ron, he is such an inspiration. The flowers are all handmade from sugar except for the four petal flower of which I bought. The flowers are extremely time consuming, it took me at least 12 hours to make all of them. For the fondant, I used my ultimate favorite, Jennifer Dontz’s and also used Dark Chocolate Satin Ice and Fondx. I used an impression mat to imprint the design on the lace and individually cut it out by hand. The pendant is molded out of sugar and the white accents are painted with luster dust to give it a nice sheen.
Happy Birthday Mama!
