Fondant Birthday Cake

Yesterday was my birthday, and this is the beautiful cake my wonderful and talented friend made for me. She truly is amazing at cake decorating, and I would say fondant is one of her specialties. If you look at my blog header you will see that is what she mirrored on the cake.

Perhaps my favorite part was the detailed stitching on the sides. She used an edible marker and clearly has the patience of an angel.

A couple of weeks before my birthday she had asked me a long list of questions. She tinted the fondant my favorite color and by coincidence the martinis my husband made and the gift bag my other friend brought me all matched. They were all on the same wave length!

She hand-painted this fondant plaque to use as a topper. Isn't she amazing? Oh, and an important tidbit... the cake was delicious!!! Chocolate fudge with milk chocolate and vanilla filling :)
