Its so lovely Archana.. I also dont like to eat such a beautiful cake.

gattina said...

Archana,
although I've said it many times, still can't stop me saying again, you're truely talented and artistic!
This design is very eccentric, and has a lot of "playful" elements - irregular peal sizes and unusual position for the bouquet, and turning a glob of fondant to fabric-like flowers and leather-like shell... bravo!!! Archana, I never thought of that!

Faffer said...

Archana,
That's so pretty. The quilt-like grooves on the icing, the cascading flowers and the string of marshmallow pearls make it look like a jewel-case. Splendid!

Shaheen said...

Every time I see a smiley next to ur blog(meaning its updated)My heart skips a beat..ooooh.. what new treats has archana come up with!!!I like the way the flowers seem to overflow from the cake.

Shankari
Thank you, looks like that you were here when I posted, so fast!

Meena
Thank you so much, you always light up this blog with your kind words.


Prema
Thank you, I am going to be so disappointed if no one wants to eat this cake.

Gattina
I should be rolling on ground with joy; I have always been a steady and ardent fan of your excellent work Gattina. Thank you for your kind words.

Faffer
Thank you for the kind words; you have an eye for the details, don’t you?

Shaheen
Thank you dear, I am flattered. I am happy that you noticed the positioning of the flowers; I wanted to make this cake a bit funky.

Krithika , Sra
Thank s a bunch

Priya S&S
Thank you Priya. Fondant is pretty sturdy; doing anything with it is pretty easy too. I have highlighted certain areas of this cake with luster dust.

Wow, that is cute!!! I might end up eating my own house though!! Thank you

Nidhi
Thank you. I am sure yours is cute as well, looking forward to see the pics. I am glad to help with what I know. Please feel free to email me if you think that I can answer a question that you might have.


Krista
Thank you. Cake is lightly brushed with buttercream, and covered with MM fondant. Soon after that I free handed those shapes ( except those rounds, for which I used a mini cookie cutter as a template) with an embossing tool ( something like a steel skewer stick will do) Then I went over the lines with a pointed tool to make dots so that it will resemble stitches. (Although it may sound boring and tedious, it was easy, fast and so much fun) Then I highlighted selected areas with white luster dust, made some irregular pearls and arranged it as a border. Arranged the ribbon flowers, leaves and beads in a slanting position (blobs of fondant was used to support the arrangement wherever necessary). That is pretty much it. Please let me know if any of the steps above are not clear.

Maneka
Thank you dear.

Starry nights
Thank you so much for these kind words.

Hi Archana, I don't know what happened to my original comment here... and I can't remember exactly what it was (must be getting old) :(

At any rate, the cake is simply stunning... really could never tire of looking at your beautiful creations :)

Dizzy said...

Archana,

Gorgeous looking cake. How do you make marshmallow fondant? May I know did you use royal icing for your leaves? They looked so glossy.

Thank you in advance.

Sukkimi said...

HI, wanna ask do u use "toothpick" on the roses to make it stand on the cake ?
I made some MM fondant today, but i do not know how to stick it on cake


Thanks

archana said...

Dizzy
Here's the link for MM fondant
http://whatscookingamerica.net/PegW/Fondant.htm
Leaves are made of MM fondant too, i brushed it with little bit of sugar syrup to make it glossy

Sukkimi
Yes, i did use toothpicks, plus these flowers are mounted on a blob of fondant.

jyothi said...

Hi Archana,

I am planning to try one for my daughters birthday. Thanks for sharing. For making roses did you add add gum tex into the fondant.

archana said...

Jyothi,
I did not add GumTex for making these roses,you don't have to. When you are making the usual/petal roses with M fondant you need to add GT. Happy birthday to your daughter.

Whitney said...

Amamzing! How did you get your M fondant so white? I just covered a cake in it for an "all white" party and it is more ivory than white. Used quality marshmallows, shortening and powdered sugar...Thanks for sharing with us!
