Flowers on fondant

This might be what happens when a cookier who’s always dabbling in royal icing makes a chocolate cake covered in that smooth canvas called fondant.

This was a grown-up chocolate cake for a gal who likes blue flowers. To change things up a bit, I made the cake, applied a crumb coat and covered the separate layers with blue tinted fondant. Then, I assembled the cake and began the fun part:  painting!

For the paint, I made royal icing and tinted it three shades of blue. Then I painted blue on blue flowers over the cake and added a little flag:  Happy Birthday Dawn!
