Birthday Cake: Ballerina Cake - August 2008

This fondant birthday cake was made together with my friend Christine for her daughter's birthday that was celebrated today. The two-layer chocolate and vanilla marble cakes were covered with fondant and the ballerina shoes were laid on top of the table-cloth. This involved a total no. of eight hours and we started the work on late saturday evening.
The cake decoration came out well but unfortunately, the fondant ballerina girl which i made could not be painted very well with silver and it left a very smudged look..can anybody help me on how to paint fondant with silver ? I have had no problems with gold earlier !
Surely, the path of sugarcraft is interesting and you face unknown challenges but i will keep on trying !
I wish you all a very HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY ! It's a lifetime treasure.

I love the bow and draped ribbon - beautiful.
Very clever idea to put the candles on the lower tier, rather than the top - it looks very striking. I think I shall steal this idea!!!!

Beautiful cake Anamika. All the details look so perfect. Love the swags & bows with the impressions.

Try mixing the silver dust with vodka/lemon extract. Hope it helps!

Dear Anamika,
I saw your comment at Tartasacher (Sentimental Journey) and only wanted to find out what it means to be a Sugarcrafter - So I came over for a visit - I'm sitting here, mouth wide open, almost unable to get some air into my lungs - that's unbelievable, marvellous and real art - I'm impressed!
