Button, button, where’s the…?

Buttons bdayOlivia was turning 13. Her mum told me that two of her favourite things are buttons and the colour purple. Could I make her a cake? Here’s what I came up with.
I made a bunch of flat buttons with holes but then remembered my own antique button collection. I grabbed a few that looked interesting, washed them, and then used them as molds with fondant. The results were so interesting! It was a lot of fun experimenting with the buttons and I think the variety of shapes added to the look of the cake. And best of all, Livi loved it.
