A pretty cake

This post is for someone who is very passionate about cooking and baking. She is my friend and cousin Swapna chechi. She did one amazing fondant cake with cosmetic theme on her daughter's birthday. It was the first time she was trying fondant and the cake looked beautiful. All the little girls who came for the party was surprised to see an edible palette of cosmetics on the cake. The cake was a combination of red velvet cake and vanilla layers. The fondant was made of marshmallow and tasted nice. She made marshmallow fondant 3 days in advance and kept it covered with cling film and in an air tight vessel in refrigerator.
Here are the some steps of decorating the cake.
  • The cake was of three layers bottom and top layer being vanilla and middle one red velvet. The cake was covered with chocolate butter cream (kid's favourite). 
  • The nail polish bottom part is fondant and the cap is dark chocolate. The eye shadow base is caramel toffee which she flattened. The mascara stick is a toothpick dipped in chocolate and chocolate vermicilli used for decorating. 
  • The lipstick is coloured fondant and the base is chocolate. The blush is a combination of caramel toffee and chocolate.
