St. Patrick’s Day Cake

Celtic Cross Fleur di lis shamrock clover cake Celtic Cross Fleur-di-lis shamrock clover cake
A cake for a combined St. Patrick’s Day/anniversary/birthday celebration.  The cake combines the Irish themed Celtic crosses and gumpaste shamrocks with fleur-di-lis and fondant pearls, elements from my friends’ wedding cake.  It also recreates the flavors of the second tier of their wedding cake, which as harried newlyweds they never got to taste.  Homemade fondant covers the almond cake, filled with almond pastry cream and covered with vanilla bean Swiss meringue buttercream.
