Big stuff in the cake world this week. I was asked to make some of my Famous Oreo Surprise cupcakes for a friend/colleague that is leaving my company on Friday.
Then I will be cutting white squares from fondant to make baby cards. Those will be stuck randomly throughout the top of the cake. SEE BELOW.
As the border around the top tier I will use alternating Red Hearts and Black Spades cut from fondant. I purchased a Wilton mini cookie cutter set of Card symbols several weeks ago for this reason.
For the bottom tier I will be using a rope border out of butter cream done in black icing. Then I will pipe random swirlies in red butter cream on the sides. On the top of the tier I will write "Merry Un-Birthday" in a crazy font.
Pretty excited to make this cake. It's a complete surprise as well. My Brudder knows I am making him a cake but he doesn't know the style and we both were raised on Alice in Wonderland so this cake will be a pretty big deal.
So with this said:
