Corporate 10th Anniversary Cake (click on photo to enlarge).

This cake was another set of "firsts" for me - this was my first time to ever be asked to make a cake for a corporate function, it was my first time to ever make a fondant bow (awkward!), and it was my first time to ever work with black fondant (extremely temperamental stuff).  The cake was for an educational consulting company that just celebrated its 10th year in the business of helping children.  White wedding cake with Madagascar vanilla butter cream filling and icing.  I made a hot mess of this dang fondant bow.  It looked so much easier than it really was.  Hopefully someone will want another one soon, because Lord knows I need some practice mastering this technique!  Top half of cake was covered in black fondant to give a chalkboard appearance, and then was piped in butter cream.  This was a huge cake and weighed nearly 40 pounds!  I'm so happy to be part of JBHM Education Group - may they have many, many more birthday celebrations!
