I had another cake order! Yipee! I love making cakes, but since we’ve moved so much I’ve always worked just word of mouth. Every once in a while getting an order from someone stumbling across my blog from a google search. But now that we’re staying put here in UT I have a website (it will be up soon I promise!) and I’m going to start some real marketing! I’m so excited. Anyway…
This cake was for a first communion. The grandmother ordered this cake from out of town. I worked with the mother and daughter on the design. They wanted 3D praying hands with a rosary. They were pleased and I thought it turned out as well as it possibly could! Just don’t turn me into Cake Wrecks for having body parts on a cake! We didn’t want the hands to be all Skin and veins ans stuff so we put them in white gloves.
I was pleased with how well the lace edging turned out. I used molded chocolate and covered it in a thin layer of fondant. The rosary is real. I was going to make fondant, but the hands were so small and delicate I felt that I fondant/gumpaste rosary would take away from it. So I went with a pearl and silver childs rosary to fit the small hands better.
