This cake was designed especially for a friend of mine so I knew that it had to be perfect. Fondant tinted to the perfect shade of sea foam was indented on the first tier with a small quatrefoil cutter from Not Just Cakes By Annie. The sugar pearls were tinted gold as well with a bit of gold disco dust and set into the fondant between the quatrefoils. Using a dry brush, I hand painted the gold “dripping” on the top tier of the cake and topped the cake with two offset wafer paper roses. FYI, I learned the wafer paper roses from the amazing Stevi of Hey, There Cupcake in her class on Craftsy.
I knew Becca loved Hummingbird cake (which is also what she had for her wedding cake) so the bottom tier was a Hummingbird cake with white chocolate cream cheese swiss meringue buttercream and the top tier consisted of chocolate rum cake and a whipped ganache swiss meringue buttercream.
Happy birthday, Becca!
