My friend Karen texted me and asked if I could do a cake for her sister in law. We debated between making a cake with her brother’s face on it or a humming bird theme cake lol. Two totally different ideas haha. In the end we went with the humming bird. The cake was chocolate with raspberry filling. I covered the cakes with the colors from their wedding. A nice sage and purple. I cut out my flowers and let them sit overnight in an egg crate to dry and hold their upright shape!
I also sprayed the flowers lightly with a bit of sparkle from my airbrush.
I made the humming bird from fondant, covering a toothpick with black fondant for the beak. The wings I literally assembled one hand cut feather at a time. All the decoration was made of fondant except for the pearls which were buttercream.
Just plain cute and classy. I’m so glad the humming bird cake out well! I was a little bit concerned because I’ve never been great at making life like things from fondant haha.
