Last Month I was asked to make a Sofia The first Cake, and I was about to die!!! I've being waiting for this to happen long time ago. I also appreciate my friend Aliya for all her trust in making this, trying different techniques and staying away from ruffles and crowns when I designed this cake.
It turned out bigger and heavier than I had expected but trying something new also means some hours of try and error . At the end I felt really pleased using the wafer paper I bought several months ago (and I was afraid to used it) along with the paper die cut pouch I got from Michael's store (a little tricky to use I must add)
I also tried the bi dimensional technique, that normally should be used on the top of the cake because it turns really heavy; and on this cake just the part of the hair on Sofia, turned out really heavy and tricky to secure on cake. BTW, I must add that the hardest part to make on figurines is the mouth, lips and mouth expression, I redid it 3 times!!!!
This cake is a 8"x3"all butter cream on bigger tier and 7"x8" ganache and fondant on topper tier using the DOUBLE BARREL technique that you can learn HERE
Thank you so much for checking on my blog!!! I love to see you here
