The Bow Cake and Other Cool Cakes My Sister Made

First of all, I have to say this beautiful cake is not my creation. My sister made this cake for my birthday this year. She does amazing cakes that are not only beautiful, they are delicious too. This one is strawberry with cream cheese frosting. The frosting has been overlaid with fondant. The bow and other decorations are also made from fondant.

For the bow, she cut uniform strips of fondant. These were folded, and the ends were glued together with edible glue. She made her glue by mixing fondant and water. These were allowed to dry before the assembly. The little squiggle pieces were formed by wrapping a thin strip of fondant around a wooden skewer to shape, then allowing to dry. The circle shapes were cut from fondant with various sizes of round cookie cutters. The border was made by shaping tiny fondant balls.

Some additional awesome cakes she has recently made for other family birthdays:

Each cake is very creative and detailed, but I think the Minecraft cake takes the prize for having the most parts. There must be hundreds of tiny squares of fondant on this huge cake. I love all her cakes and wanted to share these for others who might be interested in cake decorating.
