This cake was a week-long project. I used gumpaste to make the make-up models during the past week and finished by baking the cake and constructing it. The cake was for a friend, Ahna, who exhibits funky and fabulous with her style and personality. The compact used skin-colored powdered sugar to make foundation, the mascara was piped on with a thin stream of icing, and the lip gloss writing was made using a gel writing stick from the craft store. The silver was made using shimmer powder and the fondant covering the cake was designed in zebra print.
This cake was for a 1st birthday party for a young girl in Virginia. Her parents hired me to make the cake--she's a banana lover and the theme of the party was monkeys! I experimented with a banana flavored cake (similar to banana bread but less dense). According to her parents, she ate 1/4 of the cake before they were able to stop her.
FLAVOR: Chocolate and Yellow
I made this cake for a fun, free-spirited friend, Rachel, in honor of her 19th birthday. It started as a weird vision in my head that turned into a reality. The cake was supposed to be whimsical and Alice-in-Wonderland-esque!
