Scissors Cake

Last week I was approached by Chelsey, the owner of our local bridal store, The Glass Slipper, to design a cake for her. She wanted to present a cake and cupcakes to the girls of the local high school hair dressing program. The girls had helped out at the bridal shows by doing all the hair styling for the fashion show.
Chelsey wanted the colors to be black and pink with a pair of scissors on top of the cake. I really enjoyed designing the cake and loved the colors she chose. It looks whimisical, yet trendy. The top cake is vanilla filled with Raspberry Italian Meringue Buttercream, iced in Italian Meringue Buttercream and covered in fondant. The cupcakes were both vanilla and chocolate iced in Italian Meringue Buttercream and then covered in fondant. Scissors were gumpaste and dusted with silver luster dust.
