Rockabilly Cake

Rockabilly Cake

Simi Cakes & Confections


Hello everyone,

Happy New Year!  So excited to get the year started off with great cakes, wonderful classes, cake shows and an awesome sale!

First cake of the year is my Rockabilly Cake created with Icing Images suspended in Simi Isomalt with a blown sugar/isomalt heart topper and pulled wings, with a few pulled roses and the background is cut with the Sweet Accents Die Cutting Machine.  I used three dies:  1. Designer Borders for the waves, 2. Quilted Lattice & Confetti, and 3. Ribbon Banners for the “Love” sign.  I used Elite Colors by The Sugar Art to paint the printed pieces and edges of the flowers and Wedding Gold to paint the rope from the Simi Rope Mold.  The colors really pop which was what I was going for!  Isomalt brings out the most amazing colors and allows your Icing Images paper another dimension.  



Check out the incredible sale we have going on over at CakeFu!  They are offering 3 Simi Flex Forms© and a package of Clear Simi Isomalt for $29.99+shipping through Jan 7!!  It comes with 14”, 18”, and 21” Flex Forms© and a 6oz of the clear isomalt.  Here is the link to their sale:
