1st Communion gum paste adventure- Part II

Ta-da, the cake is here! 🙂

As I mentioned in the previous post, I have made a 1st communion cake for a friend of mine’s daughter.
The cake was with 5 chocolate layers and caramel-coconut cream. I’ve brushed the layers with caramel-brandy sauce and I have to tell you the taste was unbelievable! The cake was so moist and creamy and the candied walnuts gave it a little bit of crunch. Very interesting combination, I’ll definitely make it again.

Only the candle is real, everything else is edible. The flowers are completely edible ( except the flower wire) too, the handkerchief is a replica of one that the girl’s grandmother left for her. If you want to read more about it, check out my previous post.


I have made the lace golden-ish color, because I wanted to give it more of a “old lace” feeling.

The cross is edible too.

I was so excited about the cake that I forgot to buy white ribbon to place around the board and when I remembered…it was to late. But well, at least the girl liked it a lot 🙂
