 This little project speaks for itself.

 For a very girly little girl on her 3rd birthday, a simply sweet 6" round cake specifically for her.  I used scrap booking paper for the cake board again, and then used this particular paper for the color palate of the cake.

Life imitating art in a very small way.  

The "3" was hand rolled from fondant and left to dry over night, then painted with pink pearl dust once on the cake.  The lettering on the cake board was piped with Royal Icing and dried, then painted with same pink pearl dust.  The flowers and ruffles are all fondant with sugar pearl centers and accents.  The cake was Strawberries and Cream with Vanilla Buttercream.

 

Happy Caking!
