This past weekend I was in Ohio, picking my kids up from Grandma and Papa camp. But, before I left on Friday, I made a cake for my husband's cousin, Martha, to be enjoyed at her bridal shower. My mother-in-law and Brendan's aunts were throwing a shower for her here in the Chicago area, and although I could not attend, I happily made a cake to be shared on the special day.
Her colors are going to be ivory and brown, so after many ideas and changes in plans, I came up with this cake:
This is my second cake using fondant. I make my own using the marshmallow fondant recipe. I was very happy with the results and thought it turned out very cute. Unfortunately since I was not able to attend the shower I don't know how it went over. Hopefully it was a hit.
Inside was a snickerdoodle cake with cinnamon buttercream frosting. I'm sure that part of it was enjoyed!
Here's one more close-up.
