Hat Box Cake with Gumpaste Bow

Joy taught course 3 this past month and completed a cake on the final week.  
In Wilton's Course 3 you learn to cover a cake with fondant, learn to paint on a cake, 
make many realistic flowers, leaves, and a beautiful bow.
For her cake, she created a three color bow using two colors of fondant/gumpaste
and painted the edges for a stunning look!

The cake is a triple chocolate cake that is torted in four layers and frosted with a light chocolate frosting
and then covered with Wilton's chocolate fondant.

 Here are the bow loops that are waiting to be put together!!

She painted on the sides of the cake, which is also taught in course 3. 

The small flower buds you see here are taught in course 4 which will be in the month of February - 
hope to see you there!!
