This month, the women's organization of my church celebrated it's 170th birthday. We had a humanitarian night and birthday cake for dessert.
This was a golden vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream icing. I used a fun method involving a paper towel to make the buttercream look smooth like fondant. I'll have to try and do a tutorial sometime. I'm still learning, but liked the way it turned out. I added colorful dots on the top and sides using my cake decorating tips. I flattened the imperfections down by using my finger dipped in powdered sugar, worked great.
And, just so you know... when I bake and decorate a cake, the house explodes. Dishes are never done. Dirty laundry overflows. Toys are everywhere. Just keepin' it real, people. I printed off the previous picture as a reference as I dotted my cake.
If you are celebrating 170 years, you should make it known.
Happy Birthday, Relief Society!
