Purple Cymbidium 60th Birthday Cake and Cookies
This weekend we made an offset two-tier square cake with a light purple fondant and wrapped in white fondant ribbons, then topped with small bouquet of purple cymbidium orchids.
One tier was vanilla cake with dulce de leche buttercream, and the other was red velvet cake with cream cheese filling.
We also made three dozen cookies (half flavored with vanilla, the others lemon) to match in the shape of the number sixty, covered in a lavender color, and with a small white flower. Each cookie is wrapped in a cellophane bag and tied with a purple ribbon.
For a special birthday celebration in Fords NJ.
