Fleetwood Mac is BACK!! And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, it proves I’m just way too old.
My dear friend Missy asked me to make a cake for her friend’s 40th birthday.
She wanted a replica of the birthday girl’s favorite album cover, this artistic rendition of the iconic 1977 Fleetwood Mac “Rumors” album.
It took some time and a few sharp exacto blades to cut the image out, but I think I got it pretty close. Luckily, it was a fairly simple design.
I really love this fondant image-layering technique. It’s kind of like putting a puzzle together from the front to back to get the 2-dimenional image to look kind of 3-D. The hardest part is visualizing the layers as separate pieces
The cake is a 10″ square key lime cake filled with lime curd and iced with cream cheese buttercream.
Another blast to the past was for Missy’s 40th birthday. Her brother wanted the theme to be her favorite late-1980s group, New Kids On the Block.
For this one, I used an icing image and added fondant details. Much easier than cutting each piece out separately!
Happy belated 40th birthdays, Ladies!!
I had fun making these unique and different cakes for you! :0)
