And it's a good thing too! If she hadn't I don't know what would have happened to this beautiful cake!
This cake was for a couple who just got engaged! It was a suprise from the sister of the bride-to-be. She wanted it cute, girlie, and it definitely had to have diamond rings all over it! The cake was a 6 inch round strawberry cake filled and iced with vanilla buttercream and covered with fondant. Originally the color scheme was going to be blues and brown but I'm glad she changed her mind to pinks... it looks so cute!
Normally I just cover my cake boards in foil but with this special, once in a lifetime occasion it called for a little extra effort on my part! The edges were adorned with tiny pearls that shimmered when set up against the foil. It really added a little umpf to this cake!
And what's an engagement cake not surrounded by giant diamond rings? Just a cake, a really cute cake, but just a cake... that's what it is! These rings are made from gumpaste and completely edible. Well except for the pearls on the ring on top of the cake. I wouldn't want to want to eat them because they do dry rock hard but if you wanted to you could eat them! :) Yay to edible diamond rings!
A perfect combination of polka dots and stripes make this cake absolute perfection. The color combination of pinks and brown help the cause as well. The brown dots lining the base and top of the cake were hand piped chocolate buttercream. The oh so important words were also hand piped chocolate buttercream. Every girl loves a little bit of chocolate with her bling bling!
Congratulations Cole and Alyssa! I was so happy to be a part of their special surprise day! Here's to your engagement and what every new day brings to your relationship!
