My First Tiered Cake


This was a BUSY weekend!

I had three cake orders...

Plus 3 dozen cupcakes to make.

I am exhausted :p


I have to share the pics of my first EVER tiered cake!

It was also the first time I had used  a cake stencil...

made and used royal icing (shocking...I know!)...

and made my own fondant, using this recipe.

I, being a TOTAL perfectionist, was a tad disappointed with the fondant.

I'll stick to my SATIN ICE.
(Buddy the Cake Boss knows what he's doin' there)

As you can see, the marshmallow fondant bubbles a bit.


It got rave reviews...

and my client LOVED it!

Plus, it was quite tasty (just braggin').

I hope you all had fabulous weekends!!!
(and you mothers had a doubly fab-O Mother's Day)



  1. You should be very proud of yourself because it looks amazing! My first and only tiered cake looked nothing like that! It is beautiful! I am guessing marshmallow fondant is softer than Stain Ice? What do you think? I have only worked with marshmallow fondant so far.

  2. That is gorgeous! I love the stenciling. :)

  3. WOW girl that is beautiful!!! You should be proud and show this off!! I love the colors and design, you are so talented my dear!!! I am so happy that your client loved it and I hope you got a chance to relax a bit too. :)
    Hugs to you!

I am going to make this short...because I am desperately trying to be more intentional with my time.  Spending less of it on my phone or com...
