Littlest Pet Shop Birthday cake

So here is the photo of the birthday cake I made for my daughters 7th years birthday party. The cake was a light vanilla cake in three layers, raspberry coulis and raspberry mousse and white whipped chocolate ganache with chopped dark chocolate. It is covered with marzipan and rolled fondant. I used some of my pearl spray from PME to give it a nice shine. I also used my sugarcraft gun to make the border. It tasted really good :-)

Happy Caking!

    It came out absolutely beautiful! I have been wanting to try marzipan under my fondant, do you make your own or do your purchase those small tubes? I just can’t see how I can cover a cake with 7 oz of Marzipan unless you can purchase it in larger amounts? It’s a bit expensive.

    I am really glad that you all like it. I am very pleased myself about how the cake turned out :-) I can really recomend the pearl spray it comes in other pearl shades but I think the pearl on is the most vesatile.

    The only thing is when useing the pearl spray a good thing is to put the cake in a large cardboard box because it is a bit messy and you will get glitter everywhere like if a pixie had gone though your home?? but its easy to wipe off with a wet cloth.

    Theresa: I got the template from here and there are more little cuties:

    Denise: Funny you should mention it because I have thought of it. So there will come a book in the nearest future :-)

    Rita: Have you seen under “Cake Projects” in the gallery? Its not a “full” tutorial but the photos should give a jint on how it is made. I am planning on making a color flow tutorial but with a more simple motif.

    Lilianete: Welcome to my site:-) i am sorry but I dont speak spanish and so far I have no plan on translate the site to other languages than english.

    Seagoat: The plaque it made of of rolled fondant. I have not adden any hardener to the fondant.

    anjorin: Right now I am busy planning a cake for a cake exhibition i am attending so it will not be now but maybe later.

    Kristen: do you mean how its cut into servings?? or how I cut it with the fondant plaque on?? Fondant is soft so any sharp knife can cut through. With the plaque I removed it before cutting the cake as my daughter wanted to save it.

    dulzuramagica: look at the link in the reply for Theresa.

    Thanks again everyone for your always encouraging comments.
