Gift Box Bridal Shower Cake

On Friday afternoon I had a call requesting a Bridal Shower Cake for Sunday morning, yes Sunday! Since I was stuck in the house because of the snow, I had to work with what ever I had in my pantry. I end up going with an easy and simple cake, yet delicious.Dark chocolate cake with Swiss Meringue Vanilla Buttercream.

I created this two tier gift box cake matching the color scheme of the party, black, white and silver. I didn’t have black fondant, so I had to color the white fondant myself, as you can imagine it took me forever.





My friend Adria was visiting me and  she was nice enough to help me.

 Well, I hope you like it.
 Have a wonderful week everyone!

IT may have taken forever to color the fondant, but it was totally worth it. A classy cake, all the way! Beautiful job!

It's absolutely gorgeous! The weather was so bad up here, so it was great that you had all that stuff on-hand! Good for you!

you did a great job! The cake turned out wonderful!

I have a question for ya. I was decorating my cookies last night and when i went to fill them, the filling ran over the outline, that i had previously pipped. Could it be b/c i didn't let the outline dry long enough?
