I made this cake for our choir director, Bill Painer. I am part of the Southwest Women’s Choir in Temecula, California. As a fun way to celebrate our Director’s birthday, I made the SWWC logo with black fondant and created the musical score for Happy Birthday using green fondant and black edible marker. Using our mini music note (www.sweetartfactory.com), I made fondant notes for each member of the choir.
I let the fondant dry a little before putting on the cake.
This is not a great photo, but I wanted to show how I frost my cakes before using a straight edge to give it a smooth finish. I boil water in a pan, then dip straight edge (with a shake to get excess water off) into the hot water. This gives it an extra smooth and straight finish when I am frosting the cake.
