This month it’s time to bake the last of the mini dome cakes, and this one is finished with a decorative stripe detail. Whether it be a vanilla cream, a salted caramel or a chocolate swirl cake, it’s topped off with a gumpaste rose and petals.
If the stripes are too challenging to applique, consider using thin ribbon or thread to indicate the lines. I had planned on a bold white background with red stripe cake (like a candy cane) but fell in love with a decorative ribbon and brown fabric combination which moved my cake into a chocolate caramel zone—so go with what you love.
This month is also a good time to make a final decision regarding the scalloped fringes on your trays. I’ve been going back and froth throughout the BOM, regarding whether to fringe some, a mix or all. I’ve finally decided to fringe all the mini dome cakes and I’m still deciding on the larger domes (the scallops remain the same size). You could of course also choose to add ribbon detailing or lace.
These final details might be influenced by your background fabric and I will make my final choices when I add my cakes to the final print background I’ve selected. Depending on the overall look, I may need to add contrasting lines to the bottom trays to stand out from the background print. I’ll decide when I have it all pinned down.
