I wanted to incorporate as many elements from Hawaii as I could on this cake, and also make it super fun. This was the first time that I used my Silhouette machine to cut-out fondant details for the cake. It worked really well, and I was happy with the outcome. I will say that using the Silhouette probably took just as long as it would have if I had cut the designs by hand, however I liked the clean cuts the machine gave. Plus I can use it in the future to match scroll work or other aspects of brides invitations. So on with the cake!
I dusted the bottom tier sky and top tier sunset by hand using petal dust colors.
Here is the set-up at the party! Notice the cookies, more on those in a later post.
