Pom Pom Holiday Cake
Cake made for a New Year's eve party, inspired by my sister's favorite winter sweater. I fell in love with the little pom poms, which were made from cake pops. The anemones, dusty miller, & lambs ear on top are some of her favorite flowers (although I made the anemones more like poppies, but she didn't mind). Bottom tier is german chocolate cake with coconut/pecan filling and chocolate ganache. Top tier is coconut cake with raspberry filling & white chocolate ganache. All covered in coconut fondant. I wish I'd been able to get the sweater texture to stay perfectly straight when I wrapped it around the cake (any tips on keeping this from stretching would be great), but otherwise I was pleased. Happy New Year!
