Shades of Grey
I decided on this colour palette before the weather forecast came out! What a day to make a cake, Texas storms and tornado warnings!!! Grey, grey, and more grey.
One minute I was covering the cake in fondant, the next I was in my shelter, tornado sirens blaring. Sounds dramatic doesn’t it? Thankfully it was no more than a thunderstorm and straight line winds but……I blame it for my below standard fondant covering on this cake. The humidity also played a part of my troubles, you all know how fondant loves humidity 😂
So, the covered cake (bumps and all) is a basic vanilla cake with cookies & cream filling.
I used my Marvelous Molds Sparkling Bubbles onlay to apply the grey dots. I wanted to try something different with the onlay so decided to attempt an ombre design. Instead of using one large piece of fondant on the onlay, I used smaller strips of varying colour. A little more fiddly but I think it worked quite well.
To top the cake off, a wafer paper rose – Ta dah!!!!
