I just love beautifully decorated cakes specially the themed ones like this one. I have tried my hand at decorating with fondant before but have not been that successful. The closest I have come to decorating was this mother’s day cake. I have to admit though that I love decorating baked goods more than baking them Ha! I don’t usually bake a lot but love to make cakes for friends and family. One such special occasion was my very good friend’s birthday.
Last week when we went shopping and she was looking for a kate spade scalloped purse which unfortunately she did not find in the stores. Kate Spade is one of our favorite brands and we love the colors they use. That’s when I decided I would love to make a cake with that theme for her upcoming birthday. So I decided to give my fondant decorating skills another try to make this DIY kate spade themed cake. I was happy with the way it turned out. I still have a long (I mean like really long) way to go but I’m getting there.
