Roaring 20s party...and cake! :)



Hey everyone, just got back from a reaaaaaally fun party! My friends Sarah and Bart had another theme party, this time it was the roaring 20s. Here are some photos of how i made the cake. Since i've already done lots of fondant tutorials, i'll skip to the decorating part :)

first up, flapper fringe for the cake! All you have to do is roll out the fondant, cut a strip and begin cutting little slits....when you're done, add it to the cake with water

i added it onto the cake in 2 pieces to avoid ripping...press the crease where the two meet

cut out some squares for the diamonds

they were a little too wide for what i wanted so i trimmed them down

move the fringe around so it seems like there's movement

Ta-Da! its done :) i got those feathers at Micheals in the masquerade section. I made the numbers at work and doused them some black glitter.

No 20s costume is complete without a facny cigarette holder...but i gotta keep the lungs clean so i bought some fake ciggs :)

Here is Sarah posing with her cake! She LOVED it, that made me really happy :)


that's me!

one last one of my best friend Ginny and i.....pretty fab


I love making cakes for friends because i get to go to the fun party! :) i highly recommend a roaring 20s party. There were signature cocktails and gambling in the "speak easy" room ....lots of fun music too! we had a blast :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY SARAH!!!

Let me know what you guys think :) one more of my flapper baby:

  13. That is amazing! I made a cake using fondant this weekend and the bow fell. I was nearly in tears over it! Oh well. Do you ever have trouble with fondant setting up or am I the only one? :)
