I love making cakes covered in fondant. It provides a wonderful canvas for the most beautiful cakes.
One does not need to be an artist to hand paint a cake! It takes a little patience, focus and vodka. Not kidding! Vodka makes my color gels dance and is the best item to use for getting the perfect consistency.
Anywho, don't worry about tying one on with a slice of a hand painted cake! It dissipates and is flavorless.
You MAY want to put some in a glass with
some cranberry juice if you need to
"loosen up" :)
I loved making this cake! Sometimes the simplest cakes turn out to be the most beautiful.
I made this for hair stylist extraordinaire, Stephanie from Smooth in Tewksbury MA.
Steph has been doing my hair and occasionally my girls for years. She is the consummate professional keeping current with all new hair trends and just a great person all around.
She wanted this cake for a friend. That friend is a lucky girl to have Stephanie in her life.
Anywho, I hope Steph and the recipient enjoyed this little gem :)
