Anchor Cake121/365

It’s been a while since I made a cake, but now that the ball is rolling, I have a whole bunch more coming up in the next few months.

This request came sort of out of the blue, from our realtor, Rhonda. Now, I’ve never had a realtor before, but from my one experience working one, Rhonda is awesome. While Andrew liked the house buying process a lot more than I did, I think we generally had a good experience, and a lot of that was due to her. Also, she’s just a cool lady. So, if you live in the MD/DC area and you need a realtor, I know a good one.

So, it was a little bit of surprise when a couple of weeks ago she emailed me and asked me to make her a cake for a bridesmaid’s luncheon. It’s not for a lot of people and the luncheon is going to be held at the Naval Academy, so she requested a Navy themed cake. After a little bit of searching, we came up with this simple, yet effective, design.

Anchor Cake

The cake is a vanilla cake with a lemon buttercream icing. I used an anchor template to cut the anchor shape out of fondant. The rope is also twisted fondant that I draped between the gold grommets. It took me a while to actually get started on decorating the cake, but once I did, it didn’t take me too long. I was pleased with the result. I do apologize for the photo quality though. When I went to take pictures my camera battery was dead so I had to use my phone. Effective, but not ideal.
