This is the latest cake I made for a friend for her birthday and it's actually not a sculpted cake this time! Thought I'd try my hand at a pretty cake. I didn't take photos of the making of this cake but I did get photos of the making of the gum paste flower so I will be posting an Instructable with that soon.
It is a 4 layer, 6" round, gluten-free vanilla cake with cream cheese icing and a gum paste Stargazer Lily (her favorite flower.) I went with a rough-iced look that I've been seeing done on cakes. I also made the gum paste flower. It was my first ever gum paste flower to make and I was so happy with it and she got to keep it. :) I'm excited to try other flowers, which I will be doing soon.
It was also very yummy! I just used a box gluten-free cake mix and it wasn't too sweet so it went great with the sweet cream cheese icing (her favorite combination.)
