Quilted Cake and Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

Have you all ever seen Erica O’Brien’s cakes?  If you haven’t, you should check them out now!  They are beautiful.  I’m loving this quilted cake that she made for a recent birthday party for Charla Brummel’s daughter Brooklyn.  I love the muted take on the circus theme with aqua and gold instead of the traditional primary colors like royal blue and bright yellow for a circus theme.  The real quilt under the cake platter is a nice alternative to layering linens on the table.  Erica made a fondant bunting on top of the cake instead of the traditional paper buntings that I’ve seen so much recently. Nice touch!  The cake had Callebaut white chocolate buttercream and vanilla cake with blackberry mousse.  Very sophisticated for a kid’s birthday, but it sounds delicious!  Great job ladies.  Photography by Charla Blue Photography.

  • Amy … Congratulations! You always presents us with wonderful surprises. This theme is seen with other eyes in Brazil and the parties are often prohibitively colored, with little subtlety, and for these reasons, used in parties of one year. That was TOTALLY different, elegant, smooth.
    Thanks for making my morning more merry!
    Sorry English.

  • That cake is so pretty! Is the ricrac made from fondant allso or is it ribbon? Seems like that would be really hard to make from fondant!

    • Hi Stacey,
      Thank you! Yes, the ricrac is also made from fondant. I’ll be doing a blog post with directions sometime soon.

  • I love the addition of the animal crackers too! Cute touch!
