My best-friend’s boyfriend asked me to help him propose to her by making this engagement cake…no pressure right? I guess I did a good job because she said yes!
The couple met while working at a summer camp. There was a picnic table near a swing set where they would sit and talk when they were first getting to know each other. The now husband asked if I could re-create that setting.
The cake wasyellow cake with vanilla buttercream filling and frosting that was covered in fondant. I then painted the fondant green to look like grass. The picnic table was made by cutting out fondant “planks” that were hand painted to look like wood and allowed to dry. The planks were pieced together with royal icing in order to “build” a picnic table.
The swing-set was made of royal icing pieces that were attached together and painted gray. The swings are fondant pieces suspended using dental floss. The couple was hand molded out of fondant.
