Painted Grape Hyacinth Cake

Painted Grape Hyacinth Fondant Cake

This bridal shower cake provided the test-run of the wedding cake’s flavor combination.  Fondant covers a chocolate-vanilla marble cake with whipped chocolate ganache filling.  The water-color style painted flowers are grape hyacinths, one of my favorite flowers.

A cake to celebrate the end of a continuing education class for a soon-to-be journeyman electrician.  Two tiers of chocolate sour cream pound cake, covered in vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream, are accented with homemade fondant decorations.  A couple of outlets on the front (one a GFI) and wrappings of orange and green wires completes the first tier.  The second tier is made to look like a spool of wire and topped by a fondant wire stripper tool.
