Too much creative freedom?? I had so many ideas... And so did Google! But I had to narrow my ideas down to just one style... Which was incredibly difficult, especially when I kept adding new ideas to the list that was already very long.
After changing my mind a thousand times, I knew that I just had to start. Perhaps the final idea will come to me as I go along (as it did).
So I made and iced a cake. Chocolate cake, on top of purple cake, on top of more chocolate cake, spread with purple buttercream icing, and entirely covered by a layer of purple fondant:
I chose a shape (circle), and stuck with it, cutting out different sizes of different shades of purple (and white) fondant, getting so caught up in what I was doing, I forgot to take progress photos... So the cake suddenly went from a plain purple covered cake that I wasn't sure what to do with next...
I had left the top of the cake blank, knowing that I wanted some kind of fondant ribbon arranged on top. Which I had to narrow down the many ideas for, also.
