I had the extreme honor to make this 50th anniversary cake for a friend whose parents were celebrating this golden milestone in their lives…it always brings me pleasure to create special occasion cakes that mean so much to those who get to enjoy them.
The cake was a 12″x12″ square vanilla bean cake filled and iced with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream and decorated with buttercream scrolls and dots .
The “P” monogram and “50” plaque were made from homemade marshmallow fondant. I used cutters and pale yellow fondant to cut out the letters and numbers and then painted them with edible gold paint before securing to the fondant plaques with sugar glue.
In the end, I added a few white sugar pearls to dress it up a bit.
Happy 50th Anniversary, Mr. and Mrs. P, it was an honor to make a cake for such a special occasion!!
