My third fondant cake

Well, I did the Chanel Cambon tote in black & white for the baby shower.  Except I left out a few things because I spent some time helping cater the event as well.  I didn’t have time to add the black corner detail like that on the original (at least from what I’ve seen in pics).  Also, I never had a chance to play around with gumpaste to make baby items that would accompany the wanna-be diaper bag.  I did make the cake board to make it more baby friendly. 

I had so much fun using the embosser tool for the quilted effect.  I rolled the tool in white luster than rolled it over the fondant.  I attempted to dye the chocolate fondant that I had prepared the night before with black icing gel but then opted to just paint the pieces.  I didn’t let it dry all the way so some of it got on the cake board but nothing too drastic. 

For the cake, I used this chocolate WASC recipe from cakecentral.com. The one I used is made from scratch.  There are some that use boxed cake mix also.  I have to say I was pleased with the moistness of the cake but for some reason not so impressed by the taste.  I’ll try it out again though, maybe add some other ingrediants or try a different filling. 

Oh yes, one last thing, I made orange buttercream.  Yummy!  I’m in love with this flavor buttercream.  I used Wilton’s recipe for plain buttercream and added orange extract and grated orange peel.  Try it, you’ll love it, too!  And that was my experience with another fondant cake.
