Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

A Paris themed cake for my son's school PTA event. I'd love to say I modeled the Eiffel Tower out of fondant, but it's actually just a metal candle holder. This was my first attempt at a two-tiered cake, first spots, stripes and bow. First everything, really!

Hi, Arlene! Thanks for your lovely compliment. Yes, I made the bow a couple of days in advance. I have a video tutorial on YouTube if you want to have a look... search for 'satin fondant bow' and you'll find it. If you can, buy Wilton fondant. I find it's the best for making bows. Dries quickly and holds its shape.

I am trying to make this for my nieces wedding shower. Did you make the bow and let it harden first. This is my very first try at decorating. I lovr this cake

Wow love the cake. Thought you had made the tower, it looks so good against the icing colours - the same kind of finish :)
