This might be what happens when a cookier who’s always dabbling in royal icing makes a chocolate cake covered in that smooth canvas called fondant.
This was a grown-up chocolate cake for a gal who likes blue flowers. To change things up a bit, I made the cake, applied a crumb coat and covered the separate layers with blue tinted fondant. Then, I assembled the cake and began the fun part: painting!
For the paint, I made royal icing and tinted it three shades of blue. Then I painted blue on blue flowers over the cake and added a little flag: Happy Birthday Dawn!
