Rachel's Tiffany Cake
Hello Sweet Readers,
I don't think I have shared all these photos with you yet. I posted one in a 365 project post, so you may remember it.
I made this cake for my dear friend's birthday. She had a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" themed cocktail party for her 40th and wanted this cake. At first, she wanted little Tiffany cuppies, but later decided on this. It was the first large square cake I have done, and she loved it. We went back and forth over covering it with fondant or buttercream, and, in the end, decided that buttercream would taste the best. I wasn't sure how smooth I could get it, but I think it worked out pretty well! I did make the bow out of fondant and I love how it turned out. I wonder if anyone ate it?
I shot this while doing the cake. This is the crumb coat. The bottom layer was red velvet and vanilla buttercream and the top layer was Guiness chocolate with buttercream. Those are her two faves.
I actually had to get this cake done about a day and half sooner than I had planned. The day I made this, I got on a plane to be with my sweet momma. I missed the party for Rach, but hope this did an adequate job of taking my place.
I hope you like it. It was fun to do, really. Especially for such a great friend in celebration of her catching up to me in years. :) Well, almost.
