This past weekend I had the pleasure of making a cake for a woman that was turning 70! It was a surprise pool party at a friends house and the daughter gave me free reign of the design. I immediately thought that I wanted to do sugar tiles because I love the way they look and are a different element to add to a cake. I was stuck however, I didn't know what design to put on the tiers to match the modern look of the sugar tiles. I was inspired by a cake I saw online that looked like ocean waves with bubbles, which was perfect for my theme.
I designed a three tiered cake with sugar tile separators in between the tiers. I think the cake turned out wonderfully and matched the pool party theme. The flavors were vanilla cake with chocolate ganache, and banana cheesecake filling with peanut butter buttercream. YUM!
The sugar tiles were a bit difficult to work with in the humid Maryland summer, but they turned out great!
