Just realized I had still not shared with you this gorgeous cake I made Queens Cake Cake Masters Magazine.
Yes, last month Cake Masters emailed me asking me to create a cake for their June Issue 2016. The magazine was celebrating the Queens 90th birthday and so I was invited to create a cake for the magazine birthday celebration. How exciting!!
Designing the Cake for a queen
You think this would be an easy cake to make because I had free reign on the design but guess what? No matter what I sketched it didn't' feel good enough for the queens celebration.
Flowers for the Queen
So finally I had to ask myself; what cake would I make for the queen based on what I want for her. I was looking at the Queens pictures for inspiration on line and loved her dressed in Violet, I thought she looked most radiant in Violet so I chose Violet as my base color.
Next; I chose to make the Center Cameo which was kinda like the 50's with a bonnet. I decided to highlight the cameo surrounded with flowers.
The Queens cake had to be grand. Right?
Finally I decided I had to have gold on the cake. After all the queens cake had to look grand so what better than luscious gold.
The queens favorite flower is the Rose but I wanted to make her a grand rose so I especially made her this Cabbage Rose along with two white roses and some pretty Sweet Peas.
I choose to place the flowers as they would appear on a Queen's hat, giving the top tier that look of a hat.
And that is my submission for Cake Masters Magazine celebration the queens 90th birthday. I loved making such a gorgeous cake and was an honor to be asked to submit for Cake Masters Magazine.
More details of the process.
- You can find how to make gum paste Roses as well as the Cabbage Roses here on my blog.
- The cake is airbrushed with a mix of Violet, Freesia and metallic Pink.
- I used some silicon molds to create the borders and then dry dusted them with gold before I attached them to the cake.
- The molds I used are some from Marvelous Molds and some I found on Amazon and eBay.
