Josie called us to create a cake for her sister Maria’s 50th birthday.
“Maria loves Paris,” Josie told us. “And I’d love to include an Eiffel Tower.”
Josie sent us a few different photos with ideas of cakes she liked, and we went with the colours black and white and pink.
We built the inside with layers of white sponge and strawberry buttercream, a delicious flavour that also complemented the outer colour scheme.
The Eiffel Tower was hand cut from gumpaste, and then the image was hand drawn with edible marker.
The bows were constructed out of gumpaste as well. And the stripes were applied using the onlay technique.
Happy 50th Birthday Maria! We hope you enjoyed your Paris themed cake! Bonne Fête!
