Chocolate Embroidery Cake


This is the first cake that I made using fondant and my inspiration came from the Confetti Cakes Cookbook by Elisa Strauss. This cake is a replica of her 'Sex in the City' cake that I think was done for Charlotte's wedding in the show. I decided to replicate it for my sister's 21st birthday. I think it took me a total of 8 hours to decorate the cake (I baked the cakes the day before). The cake was red velvet with cream cheese filling. It was lots of fun and I was happy with it considering it was my first cake!

Haha! Thanks for being honest Riyad! You either love it or hate it - but I think it's just a pretty way to decorate a cake :)
