Whitney's Princess Book

My neighbor's boss is hosting a baby shower for her tomorrow. They work at a book store, so her boss hired us to make a cake for the shower. I felt very honored to be able to make this cake, because Whitney is one of my very close friends! Her baby is going to be a girl, and her name is going to be Katarina Marie. I'm very pleased with how this cake turned out. It is a french vanilla cake with fresh strawberry filling, vanilla buttercream, and marshmallow fondant. I painted the castle and the words with luster dust and petal dust mixed with clear vanilla, so everything is edible. This is our third attempt at fondant, and I'm most happy with this one. I hope I keep getting better with the fondant. Thanks Paula for asking us to do the cake, and thanks Whitney for having a baby!!!
