Golden Girls Cake: Take Two

On rare occasion, I’m asked to recreate a cake I’ve made in the past. This was one of those occasions. The last one I made was a huge hit.
When I was asked to make a second one, I was concerned a bit. Could I truly recreate something like that? It was one of my favorites and I felt like it really captured a moment in time.

I decided to make the cake, but make it a bit different. The buttercream transfer for this cake took me over two hours to pipe. I have to create the image one color at a time, using different icing tips for different line thickness, color fills etc. I create the outlines first and fill in the colors from there. It’s a very intricate process!

The cake I covered in blue fondant and then applied the transfer.

I added fondant lace to the bottom. I have a special tool I use to make my lace… I created it by breaking a valentines day cookie cutter haha.

So, over all, I’d say it was worth making the cake again. It was fun to put a new twist on it and it’s ALWAYS a challenge to make such a large butttercream transfer!
