50th In Greece..Opa!

June 29, 2009



Or..something like that. Maybe not in Greece, but resembling Greece! So my old neighbor asked me to decorate a cake for a friends 50th birthday, and the birthday theme was Greece! So I decided to come up with a Santorini inspired cake! I used fondant for the top and cut it out to look like the skyline, with the famous blue doors and roof. I used graham cracker crumbs for the sand and made a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream =) I like the way it turned out, and the birthday girl loved it!

    What a gorgeous cake! I haven’t worked with fondant yet but it really adds something special. I’m very partial to the sand and the cute little seashell… white chocolate?

    Alyssa: Thanks! The sand is just graham cracker crumbs, stuck on with a little icing underneath

    Sean: Thanks! =)
