One of the most influential people in my life, my grandma, recently had a birthday. The whole family traveled miles to gather in one very large house (thanks uncle mike) in Arizona and stay the weekend and celebrate. There were games, activities and lots of laughs. It truly was a time to remember. With western being the theme, I wanted to create a cake that not only went along with the theme, but screamed what my Grandmother is to me, elegant and beautiful. I ended up with a three-tiered cake covered in white fondant, a gold cowboy rope surrounded the top and bottom tiers and three ‘country or wild’ hand made sugar flowers placed beautifully on the second tier. Here are some pictures of the cake that literally brought tears to my Grandmother’s eyes… enjoy 🙂

This three tiered cake was made for a 50th birthday celebration. It was designed to match the invitation that they sent out to all their guests. The flowers are made out of sugar paste and the 50 on the top made from fondant. The bottom tier was a rich dark chocolate cake with a smooth caramel buttercream filling. The 2nd tier was a sweet lemon cake with lemon buttercream and tart fresh raspberries. Finishing off the cake was the strawberry shortcake top tier. This is composed of white cake with a layer of  sweet strawberry buttercream and fresh strawberries.
