40th Anniversary Swan Cake

40th Anniversary Swan Cake - I was really happy with this one. I love mixing fondant and buttercream this way. It is tough to put fondant accents on buttercream because the are so heavy. But I think when it is the other way around and you put buttercream accents on a fondant base, the result is beautiful. The roses and swans are fondant, but all the swags and borders are buttercream, yet you still have the smooth elegance of the fondant. This was made to resemble an original wedding cake, but we made it smaller to fit this occasion.

very lovely cake. I am still trying to get the hang of smoothing the fondant right.
