Wedding Shower Cake

I made this cake for the wedding shower of one of my sister’s best friends. The bride’s colors are sage green and silver and her invitation “theme” was circles and squares. I tried to incorporate all of those elements into the cake and I think I succeeded, as the bride was extremely happy with the cake. I wish the lighting would have been better, as none of my pictures really turned out all that well, but they do the job 🙂

The cake consists of 10″ and 6″ stacked square cakes, covered in fondant, with fondant ribbon borders, a fondant bow and curlicues, and color flow circles on the bottom tier. I made a vanilla-flavored cake using Dorie Greenspan’s Perfect Party Cake recipe and omitted the lemon zest and substituted vanilla extract for the lemon extract (the bride did not want any citrus flavors). I used strawberry filling (the bride’s request) and cream cheese icing (also found in the Perfect Party Cake post).
