A friend of mine asked me to make an architect cake. I was excited to do this one as it allowed me to play with fondant. This is my first sheet cake. It's not easy finding an idea for architect cakes. My friend sent me a sketch for the blueprint idea and I added the architect tools to it. I think it came out to be a nice overall cake design. I hope the Aquarians like it, although I must say they will get a kick out of my sketch of a building...LOL!!
The tools and blueprint are all fondant with gel paste writing, cake is chocolate espresso, center is raspberry swiss meringue buttercream and the covering is choclate flavored swiss meringue buttercream.
I have had a baking few days, and loving every moment of it. This cake was made for my nephew who turned double digits (10yrs) and loves sports, esp. baseball! Its chocolate cake with american buttercream tinted to match the colors I needed.
