60th Wedding Anniversay Cake


What a wonderful life 60 years together can hold! This past weekend I got to celebrate David's grandparents 60th wedding anniversary! Can you imagine 60 years? The two of them have so much love for each other it amazing.

 When I got asked to make the cake for them I knew I had to make something as special as them! Since the 60th anniversary is the diamond anniversary I wanted to make the cake in white and silver, since diamonds were a little expensive to put on a cake.

 I made a vanilla cake with cream cheese butter cream. The cake is covered in white fondant. Sorry I didn't take any pictures up to this point.


My first attempt at quilting fondant. I used a fondant impression mat to make the quilt pattern. It didn't show up very well so I went over it with a straight knife.


Next I placed the gum-paste flowers my friend Lauren and I made. That was a process and unfortunately I did not take any pictures. I think i watched about 10 you tube videos on how to make them. I think there is still powdered sugar on my phone from that day!


Adding the silver pearl sprinkles to the cake. I used a small amount of butter cream icing as the glue to keep them from falling off.

 

The finished product! I made the cake topper out of cardboard and glitter. I cut the numbers out of the cardboard and then attached toothpicks to they would stand. I then covered the numbers in Elmer's glue (but I guess you could use mod-podge). I sprinkled glitter over the glue them let them dry. I then applied two more coats of glue so the glitter wouldn't fall into the cake.

 

The happy couple! 60 wonderful years together!


Happy 60th Wedding Anniversary!
