Glamourous Succulent Cake for Our Baby Girl Shower  

We are being blessed with a little girl this time and it's BABY SHOWER time!  

This is the cake my daughter wanted for the shower.  I have posted the other treats I made too.  The leaves and the succulent on a stalk are plastic, but I made all the other succulents and the tiny flowers out of gumpaste.  I do regret our decision to try adding 24k gold foil accents to the main three succulents on the cake, which were all gumpaste.  It was my first time working with gold leaf and I found my efforts much less than desirable on the succulents.  I do like it on the cake though and oh is it gorgeous stuff!

To get this effect, I covered the cakes with homemade marshmallow fondant.  Then I mixed vodka with bronze petal dust and painted a soft ombre on the sides.  I spattered Pharaoh's Gold luster dust in places for interest.  Then I filled my brush with clear vodka and "painted" around the top edges, washing the ombre down and this is the lovely result.  I really like it.  

(Sadly, this was before the gold leaf, flowers etc.)

That was a BIG gumpaste succulent!
