A 1-Year Rememberance
Created & Decorated by
Ms. Angie Rombeck-Smith
As the anniversary of a horrific day in history approaches, here are two patriotic ideas for your September 11th event. These were designed by Ms. Angie Rombeck-Smith, owner of Creations in Mt. Moriah, MO.
This cake she named Never Forget is a replica of the New York City World Trade Center Twin Towers. The towers are made of little square white cakes made by baking sheet cakes and cutting them using a four inch square cutter. These squares were then stacked on top of each other until reaching the desired height. Each tower has a long wooden dowel driven through it, through the sheet cakes, and into the cake board for stability. The towers were iced in butter cream and smoothed. Then, Ms. Rombeck-Smith used a straight edge ruler to imprint the lines on the tower that run up and down the length of the towers. She mixed grain alcohol and 2 grams of silver luster dust and airbrushed the towers silver. The images on the towers were printed on edible frosting sheets using edible inks. The towers sit upon a sheet cake iced in butter cream and painted blue. The white stars on the sheet cake are created from gum paste.
Angie Rombeck-Smith is a mom (and very young grandmother!) from Northwest Missouri. Her passion for cake decorating came out of a desire to make the cake an event of it's own and use unique and innovative decorations. She says that when she grows up she wants to be Margaret Braun. Angie is the owner of Creations in a small village in Missouri. You can contact Angie by sending an e/mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
