Cardinals Cake

Spring has definitely made it’s appearance here in southern Mississippi and the birds are starting to show up daily in our yard.  I thought this would be the perfect time to share this Turquoise and Red Birds Cake.

Funny thing … the cake that inspired my design is actually called a Winter Birds Wedding Cake and you can see the details of it here on Brooklyn Cake.   But just for kicks – we’re gonna pretend it’s a spring cake, m’kay?  Good!  ;)

Either way… winter, spring… whatever the season – I love the look of this turquoise & red combo.

Red Birds Cake

The cake was an 8″ round vanilla cake covered in turquoise vanilla buttercream.   I used Americolor Sky Blue to color the frosting – but it only took a tiny bit!

After the cake was smoothed, I piped on the branches with thinned white buttercream and a #2 round tip, then used Super Red to make some frosting for the tiny red berries.

Fondant Cardinal

The red birds (cardinals) were cut out with this mini bird cutter and I added a few details on some of them with gum paste tools.   They were made with Satin Ice Red Fondant.

Funky Alphabet Letters on Cardinals Cake

And of course, the letters were done with my favorite Funky Alphabet Tappit Cutters.  You’ll find my tutorial for how to use Tappit Cutters here.

And that’s it I think!  OH… before I go.
