Ivory Wedding Cake with Brush Embroidery
An ivory colored fondant wedding cake with three square tiers and decorated with floral design brush embroidery in white.
Starting by tracing a pattern onto the fondant, then with royal icing I pipe around the pattern towards the center of the design. Before this outline is dry I brush the outline with a damp paintbrush. Once it is dry I go back and pipe in veins on each of the leaves. It's a long process, requiring a steady hand, but just love the final effect.
Around the base of each tier I placed a string of small sugar pearls. The cake sits on a fondant covered cake board which has crystal feet.
