Good morning!! It’s Monday ya’ll and this week is going to be a doozy! In addition to my three cake orders (and cupcakes and cookies), we have to be at our church for the next seven days in a row (8 if you count yesterday).
You see, it’s Vacation Bible School this week and that means busy, busy, busy! Five days of regular VBS, then a Fun Day on Saturday and Commencement on Sunday.
Did I mention I’m also trying to diet? Yeah… I’m not sane. But I am looking forward to all of the kids and the fun and learning about Jesus… but it’s gonna be a lot of work and I’m sure I’ll be asleep standing up by the end of it!
In the meantime, I wanted to share this sweet little Sofia the First Cake I made last summer and all of my cake decorating tips for making this cake! It was an 8″ round vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream filling and frosting and then decorated with homemade marshmallow fondant.
Now, let me tell you about the details…
For the tiara, I used the largest round disc on my extruder to make ropes of fondant. I then shaped them on the cake to match Sofia’s tiara (as best I could). After they were secured on the cake, I painted them silver. For the silver paint, I mixed together Nu Silver Luster Dust with a few drops of vodka.
I think that’s it… did I miss anything? If you have any questions about this cake, leave me a comment!!
