September 25, was my best friend's, Nayerah Saad, 24th Birthday. Nayerah and I have been friends for about fifteen years or more. The reason why I made this cake especially for her day, is that i feel guilty towards her. I didn't greet her until this moment! So, I decided to make it up for her and make this cake. Happy Birthday Nayerah!
This is my second fondant cake. I am pretty much pleased with the result. The bottom Cake is a two layer 8-inch cake and the upper cake is one layer 6inch. I frosted the whole cake with vanilla buttercream and covered it with a very thin layer of fondant.
The Best Vanilla Buttercream Frosting:
1 cup vegetable shortening
500g sifted icing sugar
1 tbsp meringue powder
1 tsp white vanilla flavor
13 tsp warm water
1/4 tsp salt
In the bowl of an electric mixer with the paddle attachment, combine all the ingredients. Beat together on low speed until incorporated, scrapping down the bowl as needed. Gradually raise the speed to medium high until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
