I'm new to cake making but I really wanted to attempt a three tiered cake. So I did and made this for my sisters 21st birthday. I made three round chocolate sponge cakes, 10 inches, 8 inches and 6 inches. I filled them with vanilla buttercream and crumb coated with chocolate buttercream before covering each with white ready made fondant. I stacked them each on the same sized thin cake boards and used dowells to support each layer. I then decorated them with fondant and the ribbons. I used a ruler for the stripes, different sized bottle lids for the spots and just cut the heart shapes by hand. In all it took about ten hours to make (it was my fourth cake though. Everyone loved it and thought she had got it professionally made!
This 21st Birthday Cake I made for my little sister's 21st birthday. I created this around her favorite colors and her favorite celebrity, Marilyn Monroe.
I make my own fondant and had colored it using food coloring. The "21" has Marilyn Monroe quotes sketched on , by me, using black food coloring and a tooth pick! The green stars were made from modeling chocolate and pinned in by pipe cleaners.
The top layer is chocolate and the bottom layer is white covered in fondant that I dyed myself! I made the numbers with gumpaste, I let those dry for about a week and a half and then covered them with black piping gel and sprinkled them with disco black dust.. Everyone loved it! The cake was so moist because I add a little vanilla pudding to the mix, the white only not the chocolate..
The girl turning 21 used to have a pink teddy and a white blanket when she was a wee girl. Now she has a handbag and bottle of wine everywhere she goes! I stamped 21 into the fondant icing when it was still soft to avoid cracking then let it dry before placing the Teddy, Wine bottle, Glass and Bag.
