Mary Engelbreit Cake

Mary Engelbreit CakeThis cake was for my aunt's 60th birthday and she's a Mary Engelbreit fan. The cake was a chocolate cake from McCall's cookbook.The top layer of the cake was 6" and the bottom layer was 10". I dirty iced it with a Betty Crocker white icing and covered it with fondant. I mixed the fondant with a peach Wilson food coloring by kneading it into white fondant. (It stains your hands but its worth it.) I made the flowers and cherries from fondant and either painted them with a Wilson food coloring or mixed in the color before I made them. To give some of the flowers and leaves a shine, I brushed some of them with an edible sparkle dust.

I used black fondant and white fondant and cut out little squares that were then attached to the cake as a border. This checked pattern is seen in most of Mary Engelbreit's drawings along with cherries.

The bottom layer was made to look like a tablecloth and I added a white "runner". Actually, everything on the cake is edible (except the candles).

I am 11 years old and my dream is to be a cake designer or chef someday. I love art - drawing, sculpting out of clay - so cake decorating is just like that for me!
