Mint Motif Sneak Peek: Congratulations and cake

Mini cake Congratulations

Yep, I finally baked for this release! :)

Mini cake Cake

To make the mini cake, I used two circle cookie cutters and cut out the layers. I frosted the two layers with butter cream frosting. Then I rolled out fondant to cover each layer. Now, I would like to be able to take credit for the amazing coverage of fondant, but I cannot. My dear, sweet, oh so much more patient than I am hubby did it. Isn’t he fantastic? :)

Mini cake Card

This card measures 4x4.” While making the mini cake, I wrapped the bottom of the layers with ribbon. So, I thought I would mimic that look with my paper cake. I stamped the two largest cake layers on cardstock and then adhered a small strip of patterned paper to the bottom of each layer.
