Champagne and Bubbles
This was another cake made this weekend. This is a marble cake on the bottom tier and on the top tier a pound cake. The top tier is supported by four champagne flutes. A hole is cut in the center to allow for a glass bowl to sit and hold the champagne bottle. Needless to say, the top tier was very heavy. I was afraid that it would crush the flutes, but they held the weight. Whew! The cake is filled and frosted with buttercream. The stripes are made from fondant and stippled with edible glitter. The bubbles are made from gelatin. This was the first time making bubbles from gelatin. A few steps I failed to do on the last ones I made and had to throw away, but luckily I had enough to use. Will definitely use this method again.
