I was asked to create a cake for a joint 30th & 60th birthday party which took place last Saturday. When we first started talking about the cake, they were looking for something that used different shades of blue and had a real feminine feel. They decided on a blue ruffle cake with some shoes and a bag modelled ontop…

The cake itself was a 9inch chocolate cake and I used 4 different shades of icing/ fondant to create the ruffles up the side, going from navy blue at the bottom to white on the top. I then modelled the shoes based on a pair of Louboutins that they really liked. To create the gumpaste shoes I used the same template that I created for my mini shoes tutorial and printed them out bigger so that they looked in proportion to the cake.

The large bag was then created using the same blue gumpaste. I think the bag and shoes went really nicely together, and I loved how this cake turned out. I really hope that the 2 birthday girls had a fantastic birthday.
