Cake Notes

  This Birthday cake is for a sweet relative who has been blowing out her candles for nearly a century! I think it needs to be over the top… After all, 99 is major achievement!

So the birthday girl’s favorite flower is the African Violet. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any decent-looking real ones, and no fake ones. I did find this lovely dark purple hydrangea, and since her eyesight isn’t so good anymore…. she’ll at least appreciate the pretty color. Then I thought a baby picture of her would be a nice finishing touch, and give the creation some personality.


 The largest cake is lemon with Pastry Pride/vanilla filling, and the 2nd tier is raspberry and vanilla swirl cake with the same vanilla pastry filling. I used buttercream for the frosting underneath the fondant.

The cameo is an edible image of the Birthday girl when she was a baby (seated in the picture). The birthday girl cried when she saw it! It thrilled me to see how a beautiful cake could make her feel so loved and appreciated.
