Bachelorette Bustier Cake

My college roommate Ashley is getting married, yay!!! We went to Savannah for her bachelorette party celebrations and I decided to expand on my fondant skills and do a bustier cake for her.

There was only 7 of us going on the trip so I baked a basic sheet cake and used a 3" styrofoam ball (cut in half) covered in wax paper for the *ahem* d├ęcolletage.

I bought her a cute little surcie that was hot pink and black, so I decided to mimic these colors. As a note, its good to just go ahead and buy black food coloring because it is very difficult to mix and make yourself.

The sheet cakes (red velvet of course) were carved to make the body - I put it in the freezer overnight before carving. Here you can see a better look a the styrofoam balls.

The finished product!

Here's some other highlights from that weekend!

We made a stop in the Savannah Bee Co. I ended up buying their grilling hone for Ryan and some hand cream for me, love that stuff!

There are so many yummy candy shops along the river where they make all the delectable treats right in front of you.

We had an amazing dinner at The Bohemian Hotel restaurant.

I had the spaetzle and dumplings, SO good!
