Cherry Pie Cake

Posted by Jennifer at 11:54 PM
A while back, I made Terry's daughter's wedding cake (the celtic tree wedding cake). Luckily, she loved that cake and was hoping I made cherry pies since she has a long running tradition with her husband to get and/or make him a cherry pie for his birthday. Because I don't make pies, I pitched the idea of making him a pie-cake. Luckily she went for it because this is what we ended up with. The cake was a Chocolate Dipped Cherry Pie Cake (chocolate cake with cherries baked in layered with chocolate buttercream). I used real cherries on the top of the cake that are "peaking" through the pie strips. In order to make the cake look like pie, I used a light-brown colored marshmallow fondant as the outside and stripes. Then I hand painted them with a light coat of brown food coloring so that it had some variation and depth to it. Lastly, I sprinkled the cake with crystalized sugar because I think that's what they usually sprinkle on pies, right? Right-o! I made the "picnic blanket" out of marshmallow fondant as well. Ah, I had SO much fun with this cake. I love making cakes that look like other things... more to come!!
